It has not yet cleared up, but no Snow fell this day. In the Evening I went down to
Mr. White's to see Leonard, who arrived from Cambridge this afternoon. The Winter
Vacation, at the University began this day, and will last, five Weeks. There was Company
at Mr. White's. Mr. White from Boston,1
a person exceeding tall, but of easy manners. Mr. Bil: Blodget, the study of whose
life is, to be accounted a droll fellow; and it must be confess'd he has acquired
the art of speaking Nonsense, in such a manner, as commonly raises a laugh. Whether
this is wit or no, is what I shall not at present determine.
