April 16, 1766

1766 April 16 (Wednesday).  Was in pursuit of the Book which Mr. Smith had lent me a great while agoe, and which I sent back by Lt. Lock, but he never delivered it.  Visit at Edmund Brighams, William Woods — and Mr. Amsdens, where I dined.  Mrs. Child being dead, I was sent for to attend the Funeral at one o’Clock, but not coming home, nor hearing of it, till it was too late, I did not go.  Gratifyed Mr. Williams by writing in his and his wife’s Name, a Letter in answer to Mr. Ezra Trask in Danvers.
