June 28, 1774

1774 June 28 (Tuesday).  Visit aged Mrs. Woods at Mr. Daniel Forbes’s.  Went to Mr. Ebenezer Millers and Spoke to the women, since the men were not there, of my utterly disliking Mr. Millers or his son Harringtons attempting to buy the woody Hill north of my House since I had so bespoke it and depended upon having it.  N.B. [Met?] Mr. Jacob Whitman of Providence, and 3 women with him, going to Stow.  P.M. read vox populi, vox Dei.  Thomas Bond here about the Boston papers, Covenant etc.  Read him my Draughts: he Seems to fall in with them.  He carrys back those I borrowed.
