1779 September 20 (Monday). The Contribution yesterday was £48.7 and a Person who was not prepared at the Time desired 20/ be added for him, which he promised to repay, which was I suppose, done. Bruce was here. I gave him the Money: he gave me a Receipt and thanks to the People and to me. Mrs. Lambson very ill. Visited and prayed with her. N.B. The Town met to see what they would do in Compassion to the Town of Boston, who are suffering by reason of Market people refraining to go in with the Necessarys of Life.
