1779 July 13 (Tuesday). Mr. Adams has brought home to me at length Sir William Temple. He has led me also into an Exchange of a number of Books, viz. For Voetius 3 vols. I have Dr. Stanhope’s Thomas a Kempis, Dr. Calamy, of Vows: Horneck’s crucified Jesus, and Dr. Goodman’s Old Religion. For Monsr. Boileau’s 2d vol. and Mat Prior’s Works 2 vols. I have Dr. Hammond’s Annotations in large Folio. For the Lay Monastery, I have Herman Prudence, and Three Select Pieces of Mr. Thos. Shepherd. For Comin’s Real Christian, unbound, I gave him at his proposal a Pound of Sugar. He presented me a Pamphlet, Dr. Gibson on the Sinfulness of Neglecting and profaning the Lord’s Day. N.B. I returned him his Drexilius on Eternity. He showed me a Manuscript of his Daughter’s forming in 4to Alphabetical, and contains an account of all manner of Errors, Sects, etc. in every age of Christianity. He sold Breck a number of unbound Books, Firmin, Shaw, Shepherd, Doelittle etc. After dinner he left us to go to Sherburn.
