Finished in the forenoon, the second Book of the Cyropaedia; which I began, the 2d.
of this month, and in the afternoon I began upon the book of Luke, in the Testament.
I finish'd Matthew, last Thursday, and passed over Mark, in which it is supposed there
is no difficulty, and which I may go through, in case, I have leisure. Miss Nancy,
went in the afternoon with a large Party on slaying; and dancing. I loiter'd away
the whole evening, which I have not done before, for some time. But I made up the
lost time in the Night: between 1 and 2 in the morning when I retired to bed.
