1759 December 7 (Friday). Last Night came Mr. Baldwin from Brookfield. Brings a Letter from Mr. Forb. in which he shews his great surprize and deep Grief at hearing the Hints about Mr. Manning, but is unbelieving. Wrote to Brother Samuel concerning the Death of Thomas and Return of William. Mr. Isaac Pratt leaves here 9 Johannes and four Dollars for Mr. Joseph Chaddock, which I delivered to him, and received his Receipt.
