1782 November 21 (Thursday). [Parkman’s hand resumes.] Alexander after considerable Excursions about his Difficult Affairs, returns and lodges here. At Eve Ensign Aaron Warrin made me a Visit; and very amicable. N.B. I have had (through divine Goodness) several very good and quiet nights, without getting up at all, but once in each, to drink. A great alteration with me indeed. Mr. Brigham returned home.
