December 23, 1757

1757 December 23 (Friday).  Last night divers of our Children much indisposed, but through divine Goodness they are better this Morning.  Mr. Martyn visited me and gave me account of the proceedings, and Shewed me the Result of the Council at Shrewsbury: he dined here: returned at Eve though it grew very windy and Cold.  Alexander much indisposed to Day; goes to Bed p.m.  N.B. Wrote to Honorable Mr. Hubbard at Boston concerning Some of the College money in the Hands of the Widow Hill at Cambridge, covered by a Letter to my Brother Samuel to look after the Affair.  Sent by Mr. Joseph Mosely of Sutton.  N.B. delivered to the Widow Kelly a Quarto Bible which I bought for her at Mr. Winters in Boston.
