February 8, 1779

1779 February 8 (Monday).  Bills of two Emissions, viz. of May 20, 1777 and of Apr. 11, 1778, are refused in common Trade.  I acquainted Squire Baker with this Difficulty with respect to some part of my Money, and some Considerable which I received of him.  He told me he would change such bills as I had of Those Emissions.  This day I went up to him, and his clerk changed 142 Dollars for me.  P.M. I wrote to Mrs. Moore.
