We're getting to that time of year... buckle down and get the work done well before any due dates; try not to let the first draft and the final draft be the same draft. Same goes with presentations. Get it done and practice (not memorize) but get comfortable speaking aloud (an audience, even a virtual one, can be more nerve wracking that you may expect). Being prepared calms the jitters.

We hope your semester is off to a great start. We’re working on some changes to our office suite to welcome you back when things return to something like the old normal. In the meantime, keep your masks on, maintain social distance, and register for your vaccine. Check your county or municipality websites for details.

Those following along will remember that yesterday, the Second Continental Congress agreed to meet today, 3 July 1776, to resume discussion of a declaration of independence. The day opened with the delegates voting to send 3 additional battalions from Pennsylvania to help New Jersey, and they agreed on the compensation for shipwrights ($34.66/month; plus "Each man to be allowed, one ration and a half, and one half pint of rum, a day." After that, they moved to take up the Declaration, and, once again, Virginia's Benjamin Harrison moved to postpone until tomorrow. The assembly agreed to adjourn and reassemble at 9 am tomorrow to take up the Declaration.

On this date, 1776, the Second Continental Congress was meeting in Philadelphia to take up the motion to declare independence. Virginia delegate Benjamin Harrison V rose to request that the assembly have more time to consider, so the vote for independence was delayed until tomorrow. Harrison would eventually be elected governor of Virginia. His son, William Henry Harrison and his great grandson, Benjamin Harrison would later be elected presidents. Here's the day's events: "The Congress resumed the consideration of the resolution agreed to by and reported from the committee of the whole; and the same being read, was agreed to as follows:

Resolved, That these United Colonies are, and, of right, ought to be, Free and Independent States; that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British crown, and that all political connexion between them, and the state of Great Britain, is, and ought to be, totally dissolved.

Agreeable to the order of the day, the Congress resolved itself into a committee of the whole; and, after some time, the president resumed the chair. Mr. [Benjamin] Harrison reported, that the committee have had under consideration the declaration to them referred; but, not having had time to go through the same, desired leave to sit again:

Resolved, That this Congress will, tomorrow, again resolve itself into a committee of the whole, to take into their farther consideration the declaration on independence."
