March 9, 1779

1779 March 9 (Tuesday).  At Squire Baker’s who takes my acknowledgment of another power of Attorney to Mr. David Hitchcock instead of that of the 3d which upon reviewing was not agreeable, and therefore was not sent.  The Squire was exceeding Friendly and generous.  He gave me 20 lbs. of tryed Tallow and to Mr. Stone 12 lb. being all he spoke for.  Moreover he would have me, whenever I am in any Straight, to let him know of it.  I called to see Mrs. Wheelock.  She has a bad Breast: and Mrs. Keens.
