1772 July 29 (Wednesday). Another Burning Day — but not So hot as Yesterday. I preached a Lecture to Such as could and would attend, on Mat. 13.39. I Sent to Boston by Mr. Edwards Whipple for a Kegg of Rum. Gave him £3.15 old Tenor. Mr. Richard Kelly came here with his Mother — and in his Cart brought her Bed, Chest, and a variety of other Goods. Mr. Bradshaw and Sophy went in the Doctor’s Chaise to Concord.
