1752 March 12 (Thursday). In the Morning having thought of Mr. Forbush’s Case with regard to Brookfield Proposals, I rode over to Mr. Martyns whither he was gone to meet a Brookfield Messenger, Mr. Cutter; and I din’d there. Mr. Forbush prepar’d his answer, which had some Conditions inserted respecting Wood and Sallery — and he sent it by Mr. Cutter. P.M. I rode to Marlborough accompany’d by Forbush who is returning to Waltham. I pay’d Mr. Felton 22£ 5 shillings old Tenor and obtain’d of Mr. Ephraim How to pay him the rest, as he Should want it. I return’d home by Deacon Matthias Rice’s who is grown much better.
