Here are a couple of new words that I have learned this week from reading Two Brothers-One North, One South by David H. Jones:
Convivial:(kuhn-viv-ee-uhl) friendly; agreeable.
Here is how convivial was used on page 29:
In fact, most of the people in attendance were well-acquainted with one another, creating a comfortable and convivial atmosphere for the evening.
Manumit: (man-yuh-mit) to release from slavery or servitude.
Here is how manumit was used on page 35:
"I should explain that our family was amonth the first in Virginia to manumit slaves."
So what kind of words did you learn this week?
