May 20, 1772

1772 May 20 (Wednesday).  Squire Whipple came (desired by Judge Ward and Mr. Joseph Rice) to receive a Copy of Mrs. Eunice Rice’s Confession, which I delivered, and the justice requiring my Oath to the Truth of the Copy and my Signing the Attestation, I submitted to it.  Mrs. Wood made us a Visit, as did Mrs. Hawes — and drank Tea.  Mr. Moore returned from Oxford to us, at Evening.  Mr. Taylor with him.
