Went to Mr. Dana's, in the afternoon, upon some business. There were two gentlemen, there, one of which, had a deal of small talk with Miss Almy,1 upon matrimony. Tea, at 3d Chandler's. Most of the Members were there. Few of the Scholars are now absent. Windy Weather.
1. Presumably a daughter of Benjamin and Mary (Gould) Almy, of Newport; Mrs. Elizabeth Dana's family, the Ellerys, were intermarried with the Almys (Vital Record of Rhode Island. 1636–1850.
