Mrs. Maynard comes and takes my wife with her to ride to Mr. Dunlops. When they were gone came Mrs. Wood, who waits on her Mother Rice, to see us. At Eve came Mr. Whitney and Mr. Zebulun Rice. The Bus’ness Seems to be, to perswade me not to think of asking the Precinct to make any Addition to my Support this year, not withstanding that Meat, Grain, Labour etc. are so exceedingly advanced in their price.
