April 24, 1776

1776 April 24 (Wednesday).  Would Send Mr. Newells Vol. of Guthries Cicero by Elisha Forbes to Treasurer Gardner at Watertown for Conveyance; but am disappointed.  Fleet proves troublesome in the Family.  Spent a great part of my time in directing the gardening: could do but little my Self.  At Eve received a large Letter from my Friend Edmund Quincy Esq. Still at Lancaster; to my great Refreshing.
