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.
