May 20, 1736

1736 May 20 (Thursday).  Funeral of Ithamars Child.  N.B. I had been at Cousen Winchesters and dined with them.  At Eve at Neighbour Asher Rice’s.  N.B. he was very Stout and sharp respecting my blaming him for not bringing me the Money he had gathered in February last, upon the Plea of my Extraordinary Troubles, at that Time.  At Neighbour Josiah Newtons.  Things are almost every way very heavy and Burthensome.
