March 15, 1771

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.
