June 7, 1744

1744 June 7 (Thursday).  Spent the Day in Debating, and passing Votes of Judgment upon what we had heard.  I would have nothing to do with the Wheeler Case — and was Sorry to See Such a reigning Disposition in that part of the Council we were chose by the Dissatisfy’d to carry every thing they could to its height against Mr. Weld.  It being very Hot and my Business in the Council Such as requir’d close Attention and continual Application I was very much worried and faint, and a bad Cold also Seiz’d upon me and kept me down.
