June 10, 1766

1766 June 10 (Tuesday).  Hemingway a.m., only.  Primes the East room in part.  Caleb helps him — and in white washing.  P.M. Every one goes to the Raising Neighbour Thomas Bonds Barn: 80 feet long.  I visited a.m. Mr. William Nurse and widow Smith.  P.M. at the Raising, and after supper Messrs. Daniel Forb., Edwards Whipple and others move to me a Desire among them to have some other Version of the Psalms to be sung in our Congregation.  But I do not comply with their Desire of my Mentioning of it; Instead of doing it my self, I let them know that if there be a Petition drawn, with Reasons added to support it, and subscribed by a Number of Persons, I would read it publickly and leave it to their Consideration.
