30th.

Attending meeting the whole day at Mr. Carey's. Dined at Mr. Hooper's1 in company with Mr. Symmes, who return'd in the afternoon to Andover. In the evening I walkd with Dr. Kilham to Mr. Carter's; found nobody at home. We then went and pass'd the evening with Mrs. Emery. The conversation was agreeable, tho' not extremely interesting.
