November 2, 1767

1767 November 2 (Monday).  Town Meet on the Affair of my Support.  They Vote only 500£.  Will not provide my Wood.  ‘Tis tryed many Times in vain.  Some (as I was Informed) would have cutt me down to my bare sallery, without any Support or Wood — to such a pitch has their unreasonable and causeless Resentment arisen.  Mr. Cushing dined here.  At Eve Mr. Moore.  The former preached yesterday at Southborough, the latter at Marlborough.
