July 24, 1778

1778 July 24 (Friday).  Isaac left us to return to Byfield, to the Dummer-school.  P.M. to my great Hindrance and Regret was interrupted with Company: when I wanted to be in my Study.  Capt. Elderkin was very agreeable in himself and his account of Wyoming or Susquehannah having been frequently there, and the great Hand he had in settling and defending a number of Townships — his Interest there now, etc., were entertaining; but better if at another Time.  N.B. Captain brought a Letter to Timothy Bryant from his Father and Mother dated June 26.  So that it was almost a Month in Coming.  Four Young Women came about 4 p.m. to break Wool for Mrs. P________________.  Miss Patty Fish is worse again.
