1746 April 21 (Monday).  Mr. Owen finish’d my Coat at Evening.  After Sundry Visits in the Day I met my Brethren at sister Willards to read our Honoured Mothers Last Will and Testament, and attend upon the Duty Consequent, Particularly we valued the negro Pito: and as my Mother had given him leave to choose which of us should be his Master, he chose Brother Samuel — who took possession of him.  N.B. p.m. we were at Mr. Eliots and Mr. Robert Brecks, etc. etc.
