November 9, 1778

1778 November 9 (Monday).  Mr. Timothy Whitney was here to trade with me about my Oxen.  Mr. Isaac Parker, where they have been kept, having refused to give what one after another judged they were worth,  viz. Eighty Pounds L.M.  P.M. Visit Mr. Ebenezer Maynard’s wife and prayed with her.  Visit old Mrs. Kelly and prayed there.  N.B. Nanny Beeton seems composed.  Mr. Robert Wilson and his wife (who was Patty Dunlap, grown hugely fat) were there.  I rode to Mr. Hannaniah Parker’s to enquire after wood, for we are reduced.  At eve Mr. Andrews here to desire me to marry him tomorrow.
