December 10, 1766

1766 December 10 (Wednesday).  John not being yet returned from Oxford, I borrowed Capt. Woods Horse and carryed my Wife to Squire Whipples (he having come to us on Monday Eve last, and invited us to his House, to come before 12).  There we dined handsomely and Plentifully.  Mr. Cushing who lodges there, and Dr. Crosby and his Wife also, with us.  We had likewise the Pleasure of Mr. Stone of Southborough — for he and Mrs. Judith came to make us a Visit to Day; and my Daughter acquainting him where we were, he followed us, and came seasonably to dine there with us.  We understand that the famous Bill for Compensation to the Sufferers, and of indemnifying the Offenders in the late Times, has passed in the House of Representatives though long has been the Struggle to obtain it.  John returns at the Evening from Oxford with Calebs Cloths.
