1773 July 2 (Friday). My Cattle very disorderly caused my riding to Mr. Thomas Bonds and Mr. Levi Warrins to try to change away an unruly Ox. Mr. Joseph Arnold and his Wife dined here. N.B. Upon reading the Report of the Committee of his Majestys Council concerning his Excellencys and his Honours Mr. Olivers Letters, and the Resolves of the Board thereupon, am filled with deep Concern respecting the Event. May the Lord Sanctify His holy Frowns upon His people!
