1774 October 6 (Thursday). My son hired 100 Dollars of Mr. McKey, for which I gave him my Note. Undertook my Journey home. Cornet Eaton of Framingham in Company. Called at Brother Browns (he is overwhelmed with Bargains and Labours and cannot help Alexander). When I arrived at home (through God’s Goodness) found Mr. Forbes and his wife here, who are designing to go to Cape Ann, after the next sabbath.
