October 18, 1748

1748 October 18 (Tuesday).  In the Morning I visited Mr. Storer.  Went to Cambridge to Brother Champneys — din’d there.  We went over to sisters Lydia and Barrett.  Read Mothers Will in which gives her Cloths to sister Hannah and makes sister Lydia Executrix, but She Refuses to Stand or have the will till she knows what the Debts amount to.  I rode to Boston.  Put up at Procters.[1]  Was at Mr. Fletchers who paid me 140£ old Tenor for Brother Champney.  Lodg’d at Brother Samuels.
