1778 August 24 (Monday). Visit and pray with Mr. Broad, who bleeds at times and is very weak and feeble. I went to Squire Bakers — reckoned with him: and received the Ballance between the Oxen which he had of me, and the Cow which I had of him — viz. 999 lb. @ 9d per pound. It amounted to 37£ 9.3 and he paid me 37.10.0. I dined there. Borrowed Mr. James Janaways best Friend etc. Called to see Mrs. Keen. Went in to Deacon Woods. Capt. Elderkin not there. At home found Ebenezer Briant — but he has come to tell Timothy of their Fathers Sickness and Danger, and that his F__________ must See him.
