13th.

Miss Nancy, My Brother and myself dined with Mr. Dodge, to day: Mr. Thaxter was there. He went two or three days ago to Newbury and return'd last night. Mr. Dodge is a person of extensive reading, and is fond of enquiring, which is always very agreeable to a traveller. In the afternoon I went with Mr. Thaxter to Mr. Osgood's1 Store, and afterwards to his own office. We return'd and drank tea at Mr. Dodge's: after that return'd home: Miss Hazen spent the Evening out. Cold weather.
1. Isaac Osgood, a Haverhill merchant in West Indian goods and the London trade (Sibley-Shipton, Harvard Graduates , 11:472–473).
