1760 December 12 (Friday). Capt. Rolf came to see me (now first) after his Return and tells me had no success in his Attempts at Albany to get my late son Thomas’s Wages: That he applyed to Coll. Bradstreet, pay-Master, Several Times: That he presented a Memorial to General Amherst, and waited upon him personally; but he referred him to Coll. Bradstreet; to whom he went in Vain — being turned off with various pretences; but that he finally flattly denyed him. It was the Same with the other Cases he was entrusted with, viz. the Widow How’s, and the Relations of William Stone deceas’d.
