December 22, 1757

1757 December 22 (Thursday).  Deacon Tainter and his son came kindly killed an Hog for me — weight 239 1/4 and the Deacon came at Night, cutt it out and Salted it up.  I visited Mr. LeBlanc.  Presented him with a New Testament in French, with the Catechism and Confession of Faith of the Reformed Churches in France: I also lent him Histoire abbrigee de Martyrs francois.  And I carryed a Rosary, or long String of Beads, for him to explain.  N.B. I returned Mr. Ebenezer Rice his Note to Mr. John Bent.  See Yesterday.
