20th.

Mr. Parsons went yesterday to Boston, to attend the supreme Judicial Court.
This evening I past with Thompson, at Mrs. Emery's. Miss Smith and Miss Putnam were there. We play'd cards about an hour; after which Miss Emery play'd us a number of tunes very agreeably upon the harpsichord. I had another match with Miss Putnam at complimenting, and succeeded tolerably well.
