July 14, 1775

1775 July 14 (Friday).  My Friend Quincy of Lancaster, now, came from his Son Edmunds (Stoughtonham) [illegible] lodged here, a most agreeable Meeting, and I hope profit[torn].  N.B. Squire Whipple has obliged me so much as to take my Turn this week to bring the News Paper from Worcester.  See in the Spy, the Address of the Virginian Burgesses to the Earl of Dunsmore, on the great and important Controversie between Great Britain and the Colonies.
