January 3, 1769

1769 January 3 (Tuesday).  Neighbour Barnabas Newton Constable, not having his Rates yet to gather Money for me, lends me 4 Dollars.  Mr. Thaddeus Warrin works in Lt. Bruce’s Cedar Swamp, and John with him, to get Rails.  They get 80.  Mrs. Maynard and her son Gott dine here.  P.M. preached at Mr. Warrins (and chiefly direct my Discourse to his wife’s sorrowful Case), from Ps. 42.8, to the End.  In the Eve read Rutherfords Letters.
