May 23, 1772

1772 May 23 (Saturday).  Mr. Bradshaw goes to Worcester to keep School there.  Mr. Breck came a.m. and dined with us.  Mr. Moore being here also I recommended to them the Case of Marlborough, Mr. Smith being at Boston under the operations of Mr. Pope (a Quaker) for the Cure of his Cancer.  But Mr. Breck chose to tarry here, and Mr. Moore’s Horse was at a Distance.  Mine is at Leicester; He and his wife could not tarry here any longer than over the Sabbath if the weather should be suitable.  So that neither of them went.  Mr. Hancock, the Tailor, having finished his work for me, goes home to Hopkinton.  Mr. Hannaniah Parker pays me £45 old Tenor.
