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 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.
Rev. John Mellen of Sterling.
