January 15, 1761

1761 January 15 (Thursday).  I Visited Abner Warrin.  Mr. Smith visits us: dines here.  P.M. Dr. Crosby visits my wife, troubled with Hemorroids and but faint.  Dr. Wilson comes (from his visit to Abner Warrin) to See us.  N.B. My wife offers to Mr. Smith to name the Child.  He appears but too difficultly brought to accept of our Disposition to call it by his Name, yet answers my wife that he shall take it as an Honour to have a Namesake in our Family, and to me at parting says, if I Should he shall be obliged to me, and that’s all.
