1779 August 6 (Friday). I left my Study to visit Sister Cushing. Mr. Moses Nurse has bought my son Breck’s fine mare so that (tho’ it was more tedious to me) I rode his grey Horse, to Shrewsbury, dined at Mr. Sumner’s. Visit old Madam Cushing, who is sick of a Fever, etc., but is somewhat better today. At her Request, I prayed with her. I rode to Mr. Amos Parker’s. In returning I stopt at Mr. Isaac Davis about soal leather.
