March 5, 1760

1760 March 5 (Wednesday).  Having received a Letter from Squire Pain, Probate Register, inclosing a Bond for me and Bondsmen to sign; I went up to Capt. Wood, and Squire Baker to Consult about it.  While I was there Capt. Nathaniel Dwight of Cold Spring came here; and being Sent for by him I returned home.  He urges my going to the Council to be there next Week — but I give him little or no Encouragement.  At Eve Several of the Committee of the Precinct meet here to agree and Settle Accounts with me.  But the rest not Coming nor the Treasurer Mr. Timothy Warrin; nothing was done.
