The river begins at length to fall, but rose, continually, till this morning; and
was much higher than it ever was before. A shop on the banks, was yesterday carried
off, run a foul, of a vessel on the stocks, and dismounted her. Much damage has been
done by this uncommon freshet.
I this day concluded the greek Grammar, for which I am heartily thankful. I shall
immediately begin upon the Greek testament.
This afternoon, Lucy, and Billy Cranch, and my brother Charles, arrived here. There
is a vacancy now at the University, for a fortnight, and my brother will spend the
remainder of it here. My Cousins stopp'd at Mr. White's, and I went down there to
meet them. We soon return'd back all together, and spent the evening. I had not been
with both my brothers together, these six years. The meeting was a very happy one;
it made me wish for another. Miss Nancy went out yesterday morning to spend the week.
