February 28, 1776

1776 February 28 (Wednesday).  Mr. Kendal has a large subscription (the Introduction wrote by Dr. Langdon) for his going to preach at [Cagnarvage?].  General Washington begins it with 42/ — it is followed with many Officers and others; so that it amounts to full 30£ Lawful Money.  I gave him Somewhat.  Mr. B. Bradshaw came from Providence, and last from his Fathers: breaks fast here and left us to go to New Braintry.  Mr. Kendal, Mr. Israel Walker and his Wife dined here.  P.M. Mr. Kendal leaves us to go to Mr. Seth Rice’s.
