1773 January 21 (Thursday). Read Mr. L.’s Diary. Elias was not well accepted at School yesterday by reason of their fears of the Meazles. For Mr. Reed has had the Distemper since he preached here; and Elias may have taken the Infection. He therefore Stays at home to Day. At night John Parkman came from Brookfield by the way of Oxford. Wants me to consider and consent to an Agreement he has made with Mr. Hitchcock for his time.
