January 9, 1769

1769 January 9 (Monday).  John goes to School again.  P.M. Visit Deacon Wood, and old Mrs. Wood.  Was at Mr. Zebulun Rice’s, who has sold his place to Lt. Baker, and has bought at Brookfield.  He makes strange of the Agreement between him and me, about our Bounds at the Pine Field; and of mutually giving Quit Claims; and holds to his Banister Plat, though he gave much Cause to expect he would make no Difficulty of Settling my Line according to Lt. Wards Draught.  This shews me again, the mutability and unsteadiness of human Minds.
