1776 October 17 (Thursday). Sent a Letter inclosing 3 Dollars more and therewith Linnen, viz. two shirts, and a stock, two pair of stockings, a Looking Glass and a Box containing 4 1/2 Dozen Candles, by Mr. [Tainter?] to Elias at Cambridge. The Husking was not over. It was unhappily wetting weather, though not very rainy. I read part of Mr. John Cleveland against one Murray [that?] has in[illegible].
