July 6, 1773

1773 July 6 (Tuesday).  Mount my Horse before the Sun.  Breakfast at Mr. Woodwards.  He goes with me to Cambridge and as we go, call to See poor distracted Stearns (Mr. John Stearns).  Was at Cousen Thomas Barretts, at Dr. Appletons.  Dined at President Locks.  P.M. at Professor Wigglesworths.  Call at Mr. Adams’s at Roxbury.  There was Lady Pepperil, whom I had the honour to converse with.  The Drought So great that instead of Pasturing Horses, the people at Roxbury give Hay to their own.  Lodge at my Son Samuels.  His wife watches with Mrs. Perkins.
