Evidence

"We all worked very hard, particularly Mr John Jones and me, in order to get money to purchase books; But what we wanted in judgement in choosing our library, we made up in application; and so anxious we were to read a great deal, that we allowed ourselves but about three hours sleep in twenty-four, and for some months together we never were all in bed at the same time, (Sunday nights excepted). But lest we should oversleep the time allowed, one of us sat up to work until the time appointed for the others to rise, and when we all were up, my friend John, and your humble servant, took it by turns to read aloud to the rest, while they were at their work."
