We had after prayers a class-meeting, upon the subject of a private commencement.
Freeman read the Petition, which he was desired by the class to draw up; it was voted
that it should be carried up this week.1
I went with Sever, and pass'd the evening at Mr. Gerry's. Just before we went it
began to snow, but when we return'd, we had a violent storm, with the wind in our
faces all the way. Sat with Sever about an hour after we got back.
