December 23, 1748

1748 December 23 (Friday).  We left Mr. Seccombs and came to Mr. [blank] Keys’s, and I made some proposals to him about his taking my son Ebenezer to learn the Business of a Gunsmith, which he accepted of.  We din’d late at Mr. Goss’s.  It was Evening when Molly and I return’d home.  Here was Mr. Caleb Upham who is our Schoolmaster; he supp’d and lodg’d here.
