January 5, 1775

1775 January 5 (Thursday).  Mr. Job Carly came with my son Brecks Mare, recovered (as he judges) from her illness.  He asks 4 Dollars and half, for what he has done.  Which (my Son being absent) I paid him.  I am a good deal employed in reading various Authors upon Power of Elders, and of synods, or Councils etc.  At Eve Dr. Hawes.  Sermon.
