The Seniors this morning, had a forensic disputation, upon the Question, whether a
democratical form of Government, is the best of all. The Class in alphabetical order,
alternately supported or opposed this Question. I went to Sullivan's chamber. Studied
in the 7th. Book of the Iliad. I made tea, for the Club this Evening. They were all
here Amory, Beale, Bridge, 3 Chandler's, Cranch, Hammond, Kendall, Little, Lloyd,
Mason, Putnam, White, and Williams. After tea, and singing two or three songs, they
all retired but Bridge, a very steady, and studious young fellow, who sat and had
a couple of hours chat with me.
