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.
