May 9, 1774

1774 May 9 (Monday).  Alpheus Rice, Son of the late Lieut. Eliezer Rice, and member of Providence College, here and dined with us.  He wants Advice concerning his going from that College and entering at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire.  At Eve came to the House Mr. Joseph Harrington, but after he had stayed some time, enquiring for me, my Daughter Sophy  said I was gone from home; So he went away.  I was apprehensive of what might be his Design in Coming, but God was pleased, in His Providence to over-rule this matter.  D.
