1746 July 21 (Monday). Mr. Ebenezer Chamberlins Wife here with a present of String Beans. My Sons at the Meadow to Day. I went over to Mr. Whipples who informs me that the Petition of the Select Men pass’d in the Lower House but was not granted in the Upper, which is directly Contrary to the State of Things heretofore: the Board being ready to grant and the House not. As he was going down this Eve I deliver’d him a Paper which I directed to him for his own Reading.
