Training day for the alarm list. From 16 to 60 years the inhabitants of this Common-wealth,
are subjected to the duties of militia-men: As a student of Harvard University, I
shall be exempted for three years: for all the sons of Harvard are considered as students
at that seminary untill they commence masters of arts.
This forenoon I finish'd the first volume of Robertson's Charles V. and as I read
now in connection with my studies, I shall not proceed with the other volumes. In
the afternoon I took up Vattels' law of nature and of nations.1
