Began upon Homer's Iliad, in the morning, and got through 50 lines. This author would
be very easy to understand, was it not for the various dialects he makes use of.
Drank tea, and spent the Evening at Mr. McHard's; but as the Company was chiefly composed
of young Ladies, of Course, there was nothing said, which may not be found in Swift's
and I am sure there is nothing there, that deserves to be repeated. We play'd cards,
till about 9, and then all retired.
