September 1, 1736

1736 September 1 (Wednesday).  Broke fast and Spent most of the Forenoon at Mr. P____ts.  Dined with my Mother.  At Eve I was again at Mr. P____ts.  N.B. Mrs. Elizabeth Pierce and Mr. Earl there — but I retired with what Decency I could, to the Chamber.  Mrs. Hannah the Same as last Night — Not backward to discover Regard and Affection, but yet not much more Light, as to the Article of the Children.  Her behaviour very prudent and Cautious, yet very respectfull.  About 11 I returned to Brother Elias’s to my Lodging.
