June 26, 1778

1778 June 26 (Friday).  Very tedious, hot Weather to those who are obliged to be abroad.  Mrs. P________ informs me that Brother Smith came on 24 to see me.  Deacon Batchelour of Grafton came from Boston and brought thence 1/2 lb. of Tea for my Daughter Sophy, which he had given 4 Dollars and half for.  I paid him the money but laid the Tea up; not willing to please my Palate at such Cost.
