April 5, 1775

1775 April 5 (Wednesday).  A Winter scene.  Mr. Adams tarrys and endeavours to change divers Books with me.  He gives me The Modern Edition in Quarto of Mr. Thomas Nortons Translation of Calvins Institutions, for Whistons Theory of the Earth, and Hasselquists Travels into the Levant: and the first Volume of Weemse’s Works (to complete my set); for which I let him have Dr. Edw. Hyde on Christ and his Church 4to and the famous Book of Bertram of the Body and Blood of Christ.  We also lend reciprocally several other Books.  N.B. He gave me Mr. Barrys Reviving Cordial[1] — to make up for the brokenness of Calvins Institutions in Folio Latin.
