December 2, 1748

1748 December 2 (Friday).  Return’d home.  I have heard of some Frolicks of late at Merchant Rice’s.  On the Trooping night, and last Friday night.  I (before I went home) rode up to Mr. Rice’s and (taking him aside) talk’d with him and warn’d him.  He assur’d me there Should be no more Frolicks of Young People at His House.  I understand that Mrs. Brigham dy’d yesterday.
