January 20, 1759

1759 January 20 (Saturday).  This morning Mr. Carter receives of me the chief of the papers of our Council, engaging to return ‘em safely to me again.  They are No. 1 to 22, except 3, viz. No. 9, 14, 21.  I deliver him my Remarks — they are writ as for Mr. William Fairfield to whom I also Send a Line by Hand of Mr. Carter.  My Son John very ill.  Dr. Chase sent for and comes — Says the Child has somewhat of Pleurisy.  N.B. The Doctor says he will come in the Morning and will go to Meeting.  Whereas he has not been at our meeting this year or two as I suppose.
