January 27, 1747

1747 January 27 (Tuesday).  I rode over to Mr. Martyns and din’d there.  P.M. he rode with me to Mr. Smiths at Marlborough.  I went also to Mr. Joseph Williams sadler to talk with him about my son Thomme’s living with him to learn his trade, and he readily consented.  At Dr. Gotts at Eve. Return’d home. A Letter came from Mr. Pierpoint with his account of Esquire Lee’s Debt Sworn — and a Power of attorney to me to recover.
