Spent the whole day at home. Miss Nancy spent the afternoon and evening at Mr. Duncan's.
In the beginning of the Evening my uncle and Aunt arrived, although they were not
expected before to-morrow. I am rejoyced at it, for the time they have been gone has
appeared long to me, and somewhat dull. My Aunt brought me Letters from London, as
two vessels have arrived. I have two from my Mother, which excite my curiosity to
an high degree;1
and it cannot be gratified without those from my Sister, which I hope will come by
the Post to morrow. I know not, that I was ever so impatient, and I cannot Reason
myself out of it.
