August 28, 1769

1769 August 28 (Monday).  Mr. Tainter and his Wife wait upon their Father and Mother Wood from Summers, here.  They all dine with us.  I was going out upon various Affairs, but Squire Whipple, considering how lonely I must needs be (and yet I ought to have it to say, Nunquam minus Solus eris, quam enin Solus eris:), made me a kind, friendly Visit and brought his Daughter Eliza to See Sarah.  I made a Business of talking over the Affair of Mrs. Bruce’s Petition, but he said little about it.  I had read him the Case of Sarah Green, as I took it from her Mothers mouth, which he said he could subscribe to.
