March 7, 1771

1771 March 7 (Thursday).  I perceive that people are travelling to Mr. Tainters: for in all likelihood Mr. Ely will preach there, notwithstanding all I have said to him and to Mr. Tainter against it.  Miss Mary Bradish with two Boys waiting upon her, here, and they dined with me.  Mr. Benjamin Brigham brought a Letter from the people and proprietors of Monadnock No. 4 to our Church to assist in Ordination of Mr. B. Brigham junior on the 27th.  Mr. Jonathan Batherick here at Eve with his own and Wife’s Relation.
