September 17, 1767

1767 September 17 (Thursday).  Temple thinks it unprofitable to thrash, it being wet weather and therefore goes to Mr. Nurse.  P.M. his Brother Josiah — and they go off together.  Capt. Jameson begins to keep school in my Shop, now fitted up for this Purpose.  Was at Nurse’s and Will [its?].  Held a Catechetical Exercise.  Began at the 82 Question.  Had but 11, two of which were my own Daughters.  I delivered to them some parts of the Discourse on Ps. 119.5.  P.M. Master Jameson here at Tea, and at the Evening.
