1760 February 12 (Tuesday). Mr. Stone and I (at his Request), ride over to Mr. Martyns, and we dined there. Mr. Martyn as much surprized with and as much against the abovesaid Proposal as I. We advise him ra[ther?] to withdraw it — and to have a Church Meeting, or a Council than go into this Measure, as their Circumstances are. I visit Mr. Ebenezer Rice. Was with Silas Frost at Eve. Agree with him to get Posts, trim apple Trees. N.B. Mr. Solomon Baker p.m. trims in my old Orchard.
