1778 February 25 (Wednesday). Am reading Willins Calcotts Disquisition on Free-Masons. Masters Fish and Bradshaw go to their Schools. I went up to Mr. Piper to give him an Account of the Reasons of my Sending for a third Side of Leather. I also called at Col. Wheelocks; who had received a Letter from Mr. Henry Marble Since his and the other Westborough Soldiers in the Army received the Benefactions from this Town. I went in also to See Mr. Barker, where I found Fox’s Acts and Monuments; and several other valuable Books. Cousen Maynard made us a Visit and dined here. Miss Patty is yet with us, but in the Evening came her Brother and carryed her away from us to their Kinsmans, Mr. Noah Hardy’s.
