May 27, 1765

1765 May 27 (Monday).  N.B. having on the 22d settled my Account with Brother Samuel Paid him the Ballance in full.  I lent him, besides, 50£ old Tenor.  Visit poor Sarah Parkman, almost daily — and often pray with her.  My Kinsman seems to be a good deal affected with this Providence: which I wish may fasten upon him.  He is generous enough to make me a present of an handsome walking staff, Suitably ornamented.  We dined at Mr. Procters (at the Alms House).  Leaving my wife there, Mr. Procter and I visit Mr. Foxcroft.  I visited also my old Friend Mr. [Samuel?] Kneeland, printer, who is in a very low Condition.  Mr. President Edwards’s Life is published.  At Mr. Holbrooks at Evening — but lodged at the Alms House.
