1774 May 27 (Friday). At Mr. Joseph Coollidge’s bought me a new pair of Gold Buttons, and paid him for them 8£ 6/. Undertook my Journey home. Called at Mr. Adams’s at Roxbury where I saw Mr. [blank] of Woodstock, who was blind and deaf. The way to Converse with him, was by writing in his hand. I dined at Mr. Gordons. Mr. Rowland of Providence there also. P.M. Rode to Needham and lodged at Mr. Wests; not venturing further, in unknown Roads at Eve.
