1781 February 6 (Tuesday). At Eve We called in to see old Mrs. Beeman — also Col. Brighams. Mr. Sol. Miller and his son Jacob came to Work — on the Flax — they diet and lodge here. I rode up to squire Bakers who tells me again that he will send me a side of Beef. I viewed Mr. Hazzletons (Barrett) Books. He lends me Henry on the prophets, and Dr. Guise on the Spirit. P.M. Wrote to my son Ebenezer at Fish Kill; and sent it per Squire Baker to Elias at Springfield for Conveyance. Read Dr. Coopers pertinent and beautifull Sermon at the Commencement of the New Constitution of Government.
