February 1, 1777

1777 February 1 (Saturday).  Mr. Quincys Letter of the 17th ult. came to hand.  Mrs. Spring is with us — came yesterday  p.m. and lodges here.  My Son Baldwin having collected a sufficient Number of Artificers, Tools and Materials for the Service of the Army in the Northern Department is now by Letter from General Schyler [sic] at Albany hastening back — was here p.m. but, after refreshing, leaves us.  N.B. Mr. Stones Letter to change tomorrow came too late.
