November 4, 1765

1765 November 4 (Monday).  Dined at my Son Ebenezers.  P.M. viewed his Place and Improvements which are very much to my Satisfaction.  The Eve was very remarkable — for a sad Disquietment subsisted between Mr. Forb. and Mr. Joseph Gilbert.  This Evening a Committee of the Church (Capt. Wit, Capt. Hale, Ensign Adams, Mr. Weeks, and others) met at Mr. G’s this Evening to enquire into it, and promote peace.  They sent for Mr. F. who went — but all the Efforts were vain.  I lodged at my Son Baldwins.
