1738 September 19 (Tuesday). In great Doubt in the Morning about prosecuting our Journey being it was so lowery — but Mr. Edwards being waiting, we mounted from Mr. Austins in order to go to Windham; but the rain prevail’d so much that we bid farewell to Mr. Edwards, who being Clerk of the Court was oblig’d to go, and we return’d to Mr. Austins and spent the Day. P.M. Mr. Ellery’s Musick. At Eve Mr. Ellery and I visited Mr. Whitman and Mr. Wyllys. We Lodg’d at Mr. Austins.
John Ellery (Harvard 1732), originally of Boston, was a prominent merchant of Hartford. Sibley, IX, 148-150
