September 2, 1768

1768 September 2 (Friday).  Mr. Whipple, his son, and Mr. Batherick came to work, and they are covering and closing.  N.B. Enoch Rice was here last night and this morning.  I thought it best to comply with his Demand, rather than continue the Contest with him.  I gave him a Note of 20£ old Tenor to be paid, next April.  May God grant him a due sense of his Wickedness!  and forgive both him and me!  P.M. Alex. returns from Sturbridge.
