June 9, 1772

1772 June 9 (Tuesday).  Read Mr. Fish on “Japhet dwelling in the Tent of Shem,” which I hope will by the Blessing of God be of Service in this Day of Defection, and may god graciously reward the author, and make him a Successful Angler!  Read also an agreeable poetic piece delivered last Sept. at Nassau-Hall on the Rising Glory of America.  Mr. Bradshaw had his Ague fit about 4 or 5 o’Clock p.m.  Miss Patty is taken off from her work by Indisposition.  Little Robert Breck is dipped.
