1781 February 2 (Friday). A stormy Day — Rainy, and the Snow going off. Young Frederic Parker here, having been to Hopkinton and bought of Mr. Barrett his Saddle-Baggs full of Books. Several of which I borrow of him. Ex. gr. Jameson’s Sum of the Episcopal Controversie: Dr. I. Mathers Angelogr. But at Evening notwithstanding all the Rain, Mrs. P. returned home; from Springfield last Tuesday; to Brookfield and today from Brookfield. N.B. Col. Baldwin has not come home. Isaac keeps School at Long-Meadow. Betsy rode with her Grandmother to Springfield. Elias boards at his uncle Brecks still.
