October 29, 1776

1776 October 29 (Tuesday).  Simon Crosby, going to Cambridge calls for Linnen and Letter to Elias.  Mr. Grosvenor, his spouse and Sister Chloe, also his Brothers son Ebenezer and Daughter Lucy, dined here, on their Journey to Scituate.  I mentioned to him my hearty Willingness (with my people’s Consent) to afford him help in preaching a Day for him, Deo Juvte.
