September 17, 1772

1772 September 17 (Thursday).  Rev. Messrs. Trumble of North Haven, and Joseph Dann of Ipswich (Mr. Searls Company who lodged at Deacon Woods) called here this Morning.  They all go on their Way, notwithstanding the Rain.  N.B. Mr. Searl borrows of me Mr. Edwards on enslaving Negros.  I made Extracts from Mr. Clap’s History of Yale College, and wrote to Mr. Pierpoint of N.H., which I shall committ to the Care of Mr. Trumble.
