December 30, 1757

1757 December 30 (Friday).  I went hastily once more to See my dear Brother once more Seeing I left him So low yesterday p.m.  Again bid Adieu.  Attended to my Secular Affairs, chiefly the hiring Money for my son Ebenezer.  Spoke with Mr. Hubbard on the Change who would have me proceed to take Mrs. Hills Money — because if it came to him, he must, as previously obliged, let it to another.  N.B. Mr. William Blair Townsend accosted me on the Town House steps.  He being one of the last Council at Leominster.  Dined at Brother Samuels and p.m. rode to Cambridge.  Mr. Stone rode part of the way, he being on his Journey home.  Took up £56.7.4 old Tenor of Mrs. Hill.  It was Evening Dark and muddy; So could not go to any other House in Cambridge.  Stood forward to Brother Harringtons and lodged there.
