1778 June 26 (Friday). Very tedious, hot Weather to those who are obliged to be abroad. Mrs. P________ informs me that Brother Smith came on 24 to see me. Deacon Batchelour of Grafton came from Boston and brought thence 1/2 lb. of Tea for my Daughter Sophy, which he had given 4 Dollars and half for. I paid him the money but laid the Tea up; not willing to please my Palate at such Cost.
