1750 July 24 (Tuesday). Was called to Visit Mr. Abner Newton, who lies in a delirious State. Joseph brought home one Load of Hay which they mowed at Mr. Rice’s, and 2 Load of Meadow Hay. I read Prideaux’s Life of Mahomet.
Humphrey Prideaux, Life of Mahomet; with a Discourse for the Vindicating Christianity from the Charges of Imposture (London, 1697). Several other editions were printed, but none in America.
