1773 September 28 (Tuesday). In the Morning my son Alexander came with my Speckled Cow, and 2 quarters and head and [Ploock?] of the Calf. But Alexander not well: worried with driving the Cow in the Night. P.M. He and John go away together, one to Leicester; the other to Oxford to work at Mr. William Watson’s. O that God might be the Guardian of them both! Mr. Hall of Sutton here, and dines. He is again going to Boston. He gives me some Account of his Conduct at the Association last week at Mr. Chaplins: when he prayed before the sermon, and Mr. Walley after. Master Waters at Eve — supps and lodges here.
