February 25, 1757

1757 February 25 (Friday).  Eliza comes into my Study to acquaint me that her Husband insists on my telling him what I will give him — whereas I have let him know my Mind divers Times already; if he will but repair the Fences, which he neglects to do.  I Sent him a writing to inform him of my Thoughts; my purposes and my Expectations.  This is an Affair which gives me inexpressible and piercing Trouble.  I desire to Committ it to God and wait on him for Direction and Assistance.  Deacon Tainter from Boston having kindly done many Errands for us.  The Lord reward him for the great Care he takes of my Affairs!
