1771 March 15 (Friday). I rode to Mr. Tim. Warrens to see Mr. Meads Library. Bought a good Cole’s Dictionary and paid a Dollar for it. I bought also an Oxford Bible large octavo, for 3£ old Tenor, also the British Apollo for 6/ Ditto. It being greatly defaced, dirtyed and broken. Mr. Warren also made a present of Mr. Prince’s New England Psalm Book, and Leusdens Psalterium Hebreum; also Several of Cockers Copys. Returned as soon as I well could, but it very much broke the Day. At eve came Brother Brown of Framingham and lodged here.
