February 21, 1770

1770 February 21 (Wednesday).  Alexander gets Mr. Thaddeus Warrens Horse for his Wife to ride home upon, and carrys his Child himself before him.  Thus they return to Framingham.  I visit poor Garfields Child that has the Canker.  Call at the Doctors to see his Wife.  Hear that Mr. John Maynard (Shooe maker) is very bad with bilious Cholick.  Mr. Hezekiah Maynard of Marlborough here and wants to relate the story of the present Contest between Rev. Smith and Alpheus Woods, but I refused to hear it.  Alexander returns from Framingham.  I wrote a Mortgage of the Leicester purchase, which Alexander offered to give me if I would be bound for him.
