1764 August 27 (Monday). Wrote to Mr. Lull by John Maynard — to warn him that if he does not pay me, nor Secure me better in my Right, within 3 months, I Shall esteem the 35 Acre Lott (37 it Should be) mine and may dispose of it. I visit Mr. Phinehas Hardys wife who is very low again. Thomas Rice of Pownalborough, Esq. there. We dine there. I prayed with them. Deacon Tainter here at Eve. N.B. I saw him going over to A. Bruce’s p.m. and I had desired him to use his Endeavours to perswade Mr. Bruce to let Beeton move into the House. He said he was going there for that End.
