December 15, 1773

1773 December 15 (Wednesday).  P.M. Ripley and Eaton from College, and going home as Invalids, came this way.  Drink Tea etc.  They inform me that President Lock having resigned his Office, removed to Sherburn yesterday [illegible] Sennight — that there is great stir at Boston against Landing the East India Company’s Tea etc.  They pursue their Journey before night.  Sent by Ripley to Mr. Stephen Salsbury, Huntingtons Sermons.[1]  At Eve agreed with Jonathan to stay a month longer at the rate of 7£ 10/, but upon some Conditions, viz. he must go away if there should come Sledding or if John Parkman comes home.
