November 5, 1765

1765 November 5 (Tuesday).  Mr. Forbes and I rode to Hardwick.  Called at the Furnace which was now newly Set to work, at Hardwick, by Mr. Washbourn but they had not as yet cast any Thing.  We dined at Mr. Whites.  Visited Brigadier Ruggles who was lately returned from the Congress at New York.  He was not well.  N.B. Capt. Lee of Rutland (and Ensign Jones with him) came there, want Advice (at least of Mr. Forbes) under their Troubles with Mr. Frink.  We visited Mr. Ruggles of New Braintree and lodged there.
