October 4, 1758

1758 October 4 (Wednesday).  Matters are very difficult — a.m. labouring with the contending Partys.  As Mr. Wellman Shew’d what he had done towards Pacification and exhibited a Paper of Offers which he had made to them So they in their Turn exhibit proposals — but they are rejected by the other Side.  P.M. Mr. Welman produces his Grievances etc.  And we go into the Hearing, and at his House (to which we were adjourned in the Evening).  I lodged at Mr. Welmans.  All is dark and Sad.
