February 27, 1754

1754 February 27 (Wednesday).  A Stormy Night and Morning.  Roger went off.  My son and Mr. Smith came here.  My son appear’d Willing to go to Brookfield and offers to go if I can trade with Mr. Smith still.  Provided I will give him a Deed of Such as comes to the proportion of a Thousand Pounds in our Bargain, and will let him have the use of my remaining part for Two Years free of Interest.  Hereupon Mr. Smith and I reviv’d our Bargain and settled it, and wrote and sign’d it and he is to come down next Week with his goods.  John Dunlop here and wants to let himself to me.
