1760 July 4 (Friday). My Son and Daughter leave us to go to Rutland, which is their present Home. Mr. Cook of ‘Notamy and his Delegate, from the Council at Sutton call here — and shew me their Result. Master Townsend and his wife dine here, and tarry some time. Presently after them came Mr. Abraham Beemans Wife to be examined, and I can’t avoid Spending a great deal of Time with her. So that by the various Sorts of Company to Day I am greatly taken off from my Studys, and perplexed in them. Alexander brings Miss Betty Johnson who works here.
