Very pleasant, all day. A curious Event happened, at the last Assembly: a misfortune
befel one of the Ladies; and a few days after, an scandalous Advertisement, was fastened
upon a sign post. I have as yet heard no more, but I much suspect it will be attended
in the End with some disagreeable Circumstances. Some persons can be taught prudence
and Caution only by bitter experience. We expected Mr. Allen, with the Ladies back
this Night, but yesterdays storm, probably prevented them. Mr. Thaxter was here, about
an hour in the Evening.
