1759 January 30 (Tuesday). My son Baldwin goes on his Journey to Boston. My Wife p.m. rides to see her Kinswoman Maynard. Capt. Wood tells me that Ensign Jeduthun Fay told at their House that I was at Capt. Maynards that night he brought his Wife home, till one o’Clock: whereas it was but nine. Mr. Nathaniel Whitney here at Evening. I delivered him six pounds Lawful money from Jabez Ayres junior of Brookfield — which money was brought down by my son Baldwin, and was committed to me for Mr. Whitney. N.B. I saw him endorse it on Ayres’s Note.
