February 20, 1771

1771 February 20 (Wednesday).  Was poorly last night and to Day.  Mrs. Batherick (Wife of Mr. Jonathan) was here to be examined.  I spent a great deal of Time and pains with her.  Mr. Gleason brought an excellent Load of Walnut Wood.  Mr. Biglow requests a Note to Mr. Daniel Nurse for £4.4.0 when I owe him but 12/6 and receive only 48/ but tells me Mr. Thaddeus Warrin owes him the rest and shall bring it to me.  I therefore gratifie him, though it is out of Line to do it, and if proceeded in frequently would cause no little trouble.
