March 21, 1761

1761 March 21 (Saturday).  Mr. Hills brings me a Letter concerning his Wife from Mr. Joshua Prentice, in answer to mine of the 18.  Mr. Hills also brings his Relation.  I was obliged to Send to Mr. Elijah Rice to come with his.  And he accordingly came with it.  It being Mr. Thomas Goodenows writing, I Strictly interrogated him about it.  Was obliged to alter it; at his Desire did it — and likewise he requesting it, made the addition of Some of those Things which I had heretofore received from his Mouth — which were preferable in a Relation to any Thing that any body else could write for him.
