1774 July 9 (Saturday). Young Mr. Hutchinson going to Concord. I wrote to my son William to inform him of Mr. Charles Lawrence’s desire to buy my Land that yet remains in Ashby. Read a Letter from my Son Samuel in response to mine by Mr. Daniel Nurse — that at Boston and other Towns, they did not conform to the Governors late proclamation etc. that it was expected there would be a Congress, that they Should sit still till that was over, and then should pursue the Measures that would be agreed upon by that Body.
