1769 November 4 (Saturday). Deacon Wood came to talk with my Son about Anne Newton. It was an Affair that I did not care to open my Lips about. I gave my Son a Note of Hand, written to Mr. Samuel Haskell for the Colt which Mr. Forbes lately Sent me from him, of £13.6.8 lawful money to be Paid Jan.1 next, to him or his Order. Ebenezer is accompanyed on his Journey by his Sister Bond, who is going to Brookfield. John goes to Capt. Maynards Cyder-Mill, for a Barrell of Cyder which Mr. Ebenezer Maynard is So kind as to Present me. Mr. Stone of Yarmouth calls to see me.
