I attended Mr. Carey in the forenoon, and went with Putnam to hear Dr. Tucker in the
afternoon. He is a very good preacher, but the generality of his hearers look, as
if they were form'd of the coarsest clay. A number of female figures in particular
seem to charge nature with having made gross mistakes.
I passed the evening till almost 9 o'clock with Putnam. Townsend took me from there
and carried me volens nolens to sup with him. I intended to have written a great deal
this day, but all my schemes vanished with the fleeting hours, and I must now refer
this matter, till I return from my intended Journey.
