May 27, 1774

1774 May 27 (Friday).  At Mr. Joseph Coollidge’s bought me a new pair of Gold Buttons, and paid him for them 8£ 6/.  Undertook my Journey home. Called at Mr. Adams’s at Roxbury where I saw Mr. [blank] of Woodstock, who was blind and deaf.  The way to Converse with him, was by writing in his hand.  I dined at Mr. Gordons.  Mr. Rowland of Providence there also.  P.M. Rode to Needham and lodged at Mr. Wests; not venturing further, in unknown Roads at Eve.
