October 12, 1773

1773 October 12 (Tuesday).  Mr. Nathaniel Whitney informs me that Mr. Samuel Fay (whom he has been to See of late) is not only poor, but expressed himself concerning me, his Pitying Friend, as if he was out of Frame.  Mrs. Martyn and her Daughter in law, Mr. Richards Wife, made us a Visit, and dine here.  Wrote to my Son Baldwin about my Cattle, and to Alexander.  Mrs. Martyn took the Care of these Letters.
