May 16, 1780

1780 May 16 (Tuesday).  I rode to Mr. Fessenden to try to put out my Sheep, but in Vain.  I dined there.  P.M. rode over the Mr. Whitney’s and conveyed the Contribution which we made for him in Money and Notes, and took his Receipt.  I delivered him Six Books as my own Contribution, viz. Calvin’s Harmony, Morning Exercise, Pierce’s Sinner inplead, Claggett’s Abuse of Grace, Butler’s Sermons, Bradbury and Pike on Trinity.  Went to Mr. Wood’s the Clothier.  Returned at eve.  Stephen Batherick works here.
