September 22, 1779

1779 September 22 (Wednesday).  N.B. This morn I sent my Letter to Cousen Briant by Mr. Moses Potter, going to Ipswich: and with it a Bundle containing for Timothy, Seven yards of White tow cloth etc. etc.  See Memorandum Book.  The Widow Fay dined with us.  Spent the Afternoon with Mrs. P________ and drank Tea.  I read in Clark’s Lives, Mr. Hugh Broughton’s, and several other Parts of that useful Book.  Was much moved and stimulated by their excellent Examples.  N.B. I have received a letter from Mr. John Forbes of Otter Creek, with the Constitution of the State of Vermont.
