1772 September 3 (Thursday).  In returning to Mr. Forbes’s, Stopped at Mr. Wards.  Dined at my Son Ebenezers.  P.M. visited Mr. Joseph Bruce’s.  Lodged at Ebenezers.  N.B. My Daughter P________ relates divers Things in Defence of her Daughter Betty against what her Aunt Moore  had writ, and against what her Grandmother had Said of her to Mr. Bradshaw — what also her Aunt Cushing had said of her — which gave me no Small Trouble.
