July 20, 1776

1776 July 20 (Saturday).  Reckoned with Nathaniel Chamberlain.  I find he has worked for me 61 Days.  What he asks is five Dollars per Month.  This, together with 21/ old Tenor on the Old score of his Cutting wood for me at the Ministerial Lot, I paid him, in full.  P.M. Elias came home from Mill-River.  Major Wheelock came to me with his Wifes Relation, but it needed Alteration — wherefore he desired the Affair of her Dismission [sic] might be deferred to another sabbath.
