~The next day~
I headed to the shop. There were not many people near the shop. I opened the door and stepped inside. The woman was there, putting the ring into a ring box. "Do you like it, sir?" She asked, grinning. "Yes, thank you." I replied. I took the ring box and left the store, but not before bowing. "Thank you, miss." I said. "My pleasure." She replied with a glowing smile. When I brought the ring to my wife on Christmas Day, she jumped in joy and I was very happy.
~Thursday at Williamsburg~
Today, I visited the house of George Wythe. He is teaching my dearest friend Thomas Jefferson at his house. He is teaching him law. The house was quite grand, and was made out of bricks, something that I rarely see these days. We went to the parlor to talk and drink tea. The parlor was very fancifully decorated, with wallpaper and paintings and a wooden floor. We talked a lot, mostly about politics and but the chance that Virginia will declare independence. He explained that Wythe liked to study nature philosophy and do experiments. He showed me Mr. Wythe's study. There were many interesting books, fossils, and documents, as well as a fascinating globe. It looked so accurate! It was very interesting. I had a very enjoyable time with Thomas and hope to see him again sometime soon.
