1774 September 26 (Monday). In the morning went to Mr. Moses Nurse’s, and had Discourse with Mr. Nathan Kenny, who is in Glooms Still, and much to be pityed! I dined by Desire, at Mr. Seth Morse’s (to day Captain) and Master Waters, and others with me. P.M. The Company under Capt. Morse, and the Company under Capt. Edmund Brigham, met at the Meeting House and trained. By formal Request I marched to them and prayed with them. N.B. Master Waters walked with me. N.B. A Number of Boys under their Capt. Moses Warrin, trained also and behaved agreeably. After Viewing them Mr. Waters and Master [blank] May, the other school-master, were here, and, with others drank Coffee. Mr. Thomas Twitchell paid me £30 old Tenor.
