April 16, 1768

1768 April 16 (Saturday).  I rode to Mr. Thomas Temple’s to see his Child; and prayed.  Went to Dr. Ball’s where I din’d and Mr. Whitney likewise.  P.M. went to See Mrs. Martyn who is mov’d to her son John’s.  The last came to me with his Fathers Cane, and Said, “Sir, The Heirs present you with this.”  I received it gratefully.  Visit Mr. Michael’s Wife, who has lately lain in, and visit at Mr. Richards, whose Wife expects every Hour.  Returned to Lieutenants.  Supped there on fresh Fish (from Boston I suppose).  Mr. Whitney with me.  An agreeable repast.  Mr. Whitney goes to his lonely House and lodges alone.  I lodge at Lieutenant Martyns.
