August 7, 1780

1780 August 7 (Monday).  Was anxious about Breck’s Horse, which Elias rode to Springfield, and is not come back: but before noon came young Joshua Johnson of Bolton, who returning from his 3 years Warfare rode Horse from Springfield hither, thereby saving Charge, and brought a Letter from Elias, who has taken the School there, for a year upon settled pay to his Satisfaction.  Thanks be to God for the Favour.
