1757 December 21 (Wednesday). I went to Southborough to the Funeral of old Mrs. Johnson widow of old Clerk Johnson, who dyed somewhat suddenly last Saturday Night. N.B. in returning I went to Mr. John Bents and took up a Note of my son Ebenezers (which he had given to Mr. Ebenezer Rice) by giving a note of Hand for Eight Shillings L.M. or 3£ old Tenor and therewith took up a Note of the Said Mr. Rice’s, of £11.5.0 old Tenor.
