A spring day so delightfull.
I rode up to Chelsea, left my cards, for Mrs
Van Nest, and Mrs Smith. Sat an hour at mothers.
Went to a Lecture in the evening, a debate on “Capital punishments. We were much pleased, and laughed immodesately [sic].
Dr Cox. Mr Gifford, Mr Greely, and Major [Deirsae], were the orators.
William Onderdonk, walked home with us. I felt almost sick when we first went in the Tabernacle; but did not dare complain.
