30th.

Very agreeable weather. After we had done at the office, I took a long walk with Thompson.1 We then went to Mrs. Emery's where we found Miss Roberts. We there pass'd a couple of hours, and from thence went to Mr. Frazier's. We found ourselves in the midst of a large Company of young folks. All the College lads, and all the young Misses of that sett. We past about an hour with them, and then without much reluctance left them.
