January 4, 1727

1727 January 4 (Wednesday).  Towards night I went to Mrs. Edwards’s (the widow of my good Friend John Edwards[1]) and pay’d the Ballance of our Account.  Thence I went to Deacon Greens[2] printing house and paid him for my years news, etc, etc.  I had design’d to have been upon my Journey home, but it continued such dark and wet weather that I defer’d it.

[1]Of Charleston.

[2]Bartholomew Green (1666-1732) of Boston, printer of the Boston News-Letter.
