October 8, 1736

1736 October 8 (Friday).  Broke fast and Dined at the Doctors.  Mr. Breck took leave before Dinner.  Coll. Woods and Dr. Meads dined with us — a <very> decent Entertainment.  N.B. Mrs. H________ under almost utter Discouragement respecting my proposals to her, and Several Times about to put an entire Period to all our Conversation upon those Articles.  Nevertheless I prevailed with her to let matter lye still for more Mature Consideration.  I parted late p.m.  Rode up to Mr. Zechary Maynards and thence Home.  David about my Cyder one Day after another.
