July 12, 1779

1779 July 12 (Monday).  Went to Mr. Barretts, where I was very affectionately received.  He lent me the third volume of Mr. Henry, viz. on Job, Psalms etc.: he lent me also the third volume of the History of England in Folio and Howel’s Familiar Letters.  4 vols. bound in one Oct. Book, but in his Generosity he gave me the Folio which contains Dr. Stillingfleet’s Sermons, twelve, and his Discourse on the True Reason of the Sufferings of Jesus Christ.  This Cargo of Books I brought Home.  Having understood that Mr. James Webber was still sick at the Work house, I went there p.m. to see him and prayed with him.  Mr. Thomas Adams of Medfield came at Evening with a number of Books and lodged here.  We have a Sad Report that New Haven is taken by the Enemy.
