November 30, 1767

1767 November 30 (Monday).  Temple having tarried here over the Sabbath, breaks Flax.  Capt. Jamison sends me a Card to invite me to his Lodging at 5 this Evening.  Signed St. Andrews, but I was under previous Engagement as I wrote in my Return to him, by Mr. Eli Whitney’s wife, who was here with her Relation, and dined with us.  At Eve the Deacons were here to count the Money contributed, and find it to be £14.8.0 old Tenor.  Deacon Wood went to Capt. Jamison: Deacon Bond tarried and talked about the Andrews Affair, and of a Petition for another Church-Meeting.
