1770 December 7 (Friday). Alexander and Breck rose before Day — and returned to their respective Business. Breck has been So closely engaged in his Work, that he has worked (he says) 40 hours together without breaking off, except to Eat only. John and Sophy went to Shrewsbury: to Mr. Cushings and to Mr. Sumners. Mr. Seth Morse came to speak with me upon what the Church did yesterday, on his Brother Warrins Case. William came from Concord — brought my Heiffer, and some onions.
