1777 December 24 (Wednesday). Old Mr. Richard Barns wants to be marryed to Miss Jemima Maynard; and they unhappily need to be. I marryed them in my Study, by reason of Strangers below. Suse, Elias etc. were present. Breck returned from Boston. I had sent a Sum of Money to be changed by the Treasurer, but unhappily an Eight Dollar Bill comes back as being Counterfeit. What I received from the Treasurer was a Note of 10£ 14 shs. signed by Henry Gardner.
