November 28, 1748

1748 November 28 (Monday).  Mr. Chapin[1] from Grafton din’d here.  Shews me a Letter which they had prepar’d to send to Mr. Hutchinson:[2] he wants to have the Neighbouring Ministers also to write to him; whereas I conceiv’d ‘em to be fervent enough themselves he insisted upon it — but I finally refus’d.  P.M. Mr. Martyn here.

[1]Benjamin Chapin.

[2]Aaron Hutchinson, who was to become the minister of Grafton.
