January 10, 1752

1752 January 10 (Friday).  We proceeded in our Debating, but we understood that by means of some unseasonable Discovery of the votes of the Council last night, Deacon Mellen was much dissatisfyed, and at Eve he came into the Council and indecently vented his Disgust and was sharply rebuked for it.  My spirits were roused with this, but in general I was much worried and waited.  Mr. Bucknam and I lodged together at Captain Littlefield’s throughout the time of the Council.
