October 5, 1757

1757 October 5 (Wednesday).  Mr. Forb. and I rode up to Ware River to Mr. Lulls: dining at Deacon Cutlers as we went.  Mr. Lull signed another Deed of the 62 and the 35 Acre Lotts in Townshend, but would not come to a Composition of our Affairs, as I endeavoured, though I made him large offers.  At Eve we supped at Deacon Cutlers — and Esq. Ayres with us, whom I had obtained to ride up to Deacon Cutlers in hopes to have had need of him to take the Acknowledgement of another Deed from Lull but I could not perswade Lull to go there.  N.B. the Esq. asked nothing for his pains.
