September 23, 1780

1780 September 23 (Saturday).  My son Samuel and his Wife and Child left us.  Sent my Letter by him to Mr. Quincy.  Mr. Forbes came and I delivered him his first volume of Robinson’s Hist. of Scotland.  He and his Joseph Saunders left us to go to Concord.  At eve came Mr. Grosvenor, requesting and expecting I would preach for him tomorrow, But I had engaged to preach at Northborough.  He lodged here.  N.B. Mrs. Persis Adams was here to acquaint me that she could not be ready for the Church Meeting next Tuesday and prays it may be further adjourned to the 2d Thursday in November.
