Enoch's planets

I'm working on a historical novel that will include the real-life hero Nathan Hale.  While doing some research, I looked at a diary written by his brother, Enoch Hale.

Enoch was an interesting dude.  Here is a page from his diary, where he was tracking the planets...

And may I just say how odd, humbling, and exciting it is to handle documents that are 250 years old.
