February 13, 1759

1759 February 13 (Tuesday).  Sent by Mr. Jonathan Fay 3 Dollars with a Letter to Mrs. Prudence Hill of Cambridge in answer to hers of the 8th which I inclosed in a Letter to Capt. Taintor of Watertown desiring him to go to her Since Mr. Fay can’t well do it himself.  This was my Scheme by Reason of Mr. Fays backwardness to go out of his Way.  But at last we settle it for Mr. Fay to go to Mrs. Hill if can’t get Capt. Tainter to do it.
