1769 February 8 (Wednesday). Mr. Cushing takes my Mare and Sleigh (newly painted by Mr. Gale, and to day brought home by John) and goes to Oxford for Sarah, if She be well enough, and the Weather fit for her, to come. I visited Mrs. Garfield and prayed with her. At Eve Breck came from Ashby. Am reading Kennicott’s two Dissertations on the Tree of Life and the Offerings of Cain and Abel; and soon dispatch it.
