1761 March 21 (Saturday). Mr. Hills brings me a Letter concerning his Wife from Mr. Joshua Prentice, in answer to mine of the 18. Mr. Hills also brings his Relation. I was obliged to Send to Mr. Elijah Rice to come with his. And he accordingly came with it. It being Mr. Thomas Goodenows writing, I Strictly interrogated him about it. Was obliged to alter it; at his Desire did it — and likewise he requesting it, made the addition of Some of those Things which I had heretofore received from his Mouth — which were preferable in a Relation to any Thing that any body else could write for him.
