February 1, 1781

1781 February 1 (Thursday).  Whilst Mrs. P and Mrs. Brigham are gone their Journey I breakfast at Brecks.  Mr. Bowman of Oxford visits me, dines here, and tarrys till near Night.  He acquaints me with the Nephritick State of his Body, and the ungenerous Conduct of his People.  Asks Advice.  He relates somewhat of the sorrowfully great Success of erroneous Murray among his People.  Goes to Capt. Jonas Brigham’s.
