May 5, 1780

1780 May 5 (Friday).  Old Mr. Hardy came in Warmth and inveighed against the Contribution for Mr. Whitney, because he has not asked any to be made for him.  He is a very rich man, said he, and might take it as an Affront to him, except he desired it.  I endeavored to inform him better, and chid him for his Rashness.  Mrs. P________ visits Mr. Davis and Mr. Thad. Warrin’s Wife — both sick.
