November 10, 1758

1758 November 10 (Friday).  In the morning visited Mrs. Fuller my aged Kinswoman; and Mr. Trask.  Had our Debates in Council.  A very tough Time.  Dissenting apprehensions in the Council itself.  We were unhappily divided much as we were sent for.  Shameful Weakness.  The Council continued at it all Night, so that no man of all that great Body went to Bed; but I who was necessitated to retire which I did (with Leave) at about 3 o’Clock in the morning.
