August 1, 1780

1780 August 1 (Tuesday).  A Message by Mr. Elijah Brigham from Mr. Summer, to preach his Lecture — borrowed Mr. Ware’s Mare to ride there — made several short Visits in the Street — dined at Squire Baker’s, but he came not home as was expected.  N.B. The Private Meeting was, according to Custom, to have been at his House today, but it was put off because of the Busyness of the Season, and few Hands to do it.
