October 8, 1744

1744 October 8 (Monday).  Mr. Wigglesworth return’d to the Council.  Training Day, but I was overlook’d, and it suited me very well, not to be disturb’d, being in my Preparations for my Journey.  Ebenezer went to Grafton and brought Madam Sartels Chaise.  Mr. Millen[1] from Chauxit here, with his Call to settle there.  Mr. Matthias Rice kindly lent me £50 old Tenor, for which I gave him a Bond.
