October 7, 1779

1779 October 7 (Thursday).  Elias comes up from Cambridge for money to pay his Quarter Bills to May 28 last, which he says is £64.8.4, which gives me some Perplexity, seeing I have given him so much especially last August to pay those Bills.  N.B. on August 17 an hundred Dollars and on the 24 thirty Dollars more.  Mr. Jacob Foster has been with us and dined here.  He is returning to New Castle.  I visit old Neighbor Pratt and his wife, Warren etc.
