1759 November 23 (Friday).  Mr. Gale and Jabez.  My Wife and Lucy to Capt. Allens.  Cousen Maynard here p.m.  Deacon Tainter here at Eve and tells me that he and Mr. Whitney had made a Visit to Mr. Samuel Fay junior who upon their Enquiry into his Neglects of divine Ordinances receive this Answer from him that all lies with me — that is, that though we had made up, yet I had destroyed it all since — that is by my speaking to him at Capt. Woods on the 3d of October last.  I am astonished at his Conduct.
