July 4, 1760

1760 July 4 (Friday).  My Son and Daughter leave us to go to Rutland, which is their present Home.  Mr. Cook of ‘Notamy and his Delegate, from the Council at Sutton call here — and shew me their Result.  Master Townsend and his wife dine here, and tarry some time.  Presently after them came Mr. Abraham Beemans Wife to be examined, and I can’t avoid Spending a great deal of Time with her.  So that by the various Sorts of Company to Day I am greatly taken off from my Studys, and perplexed in them.  Alexander brings Miss Betty Johnson who works here.
