July 4, 1778

1778 July 4 (Saturday).  The Conversation is wholly upon the Case of the Criminals, especially respecting Mrs. Spooner and her Behavior.  P.M. Mr. Langton of York returning from Farmington, calls here, and I conceive he would be ready to keep Sabbath with and preach for me; but I considered the Condition of good Brother Stone in his Feebleness, and therefore Sent him there.  Mr. Fitch also, from Hopkinton going to [illegible] at North Sutton calls here [torn] of late born him another child; [torn] very comfortable [blot] though it is about a Fortnight [torn].
