September 11, 1773

1773 September 11 (Saturday).  Mr. Samuel Salsbury of Boston, Merchant, at Breakfast here.  P.M. whilst I was much engaged in my preparations for the Sabbath, especially as it will be a peculiar Sabbath to me, came Mr. P. Whitney, desiring we might Change tomorrow.  I have no way to avoid it: but must keep my preparations to another Week.  He informs me of his Necessity, and I could not deny.  He has been at the Court at Worcester to hear the Tryal of Mr. Goss’s Case, who has obtained, against the Town of Bolton, but the latter have appealed.
