Called on Miss L—a D—ds this evening for the purpose of taking her to the F. I. Exhibition but she was not in, so I went by myself. The place is crowded every evening. Was there also a while this afternoon.
As mentioned previously, Miss L—a D—ds is likely Miss Louisa David (Nathan often adds the superfluous ‘s’). For more see the April 5 entry.
Nathan seems to especially enjoy the Franklin Institute Annual Exhibition of American Manufactures. He has attended several times (according to news reports, it was impossible to see it all in one or even a few visits). For more, see the October 18 entry.
