February 6, 1781

1781 February 6 (Tuesday).  At Eve We called in to see old Mrs. Beeman — also Col. Brighams.  Mr. Sol. Miller and his son Jacob came to Work — on the Flax — they diet and lodge here.  I rode up to squire Bakers who tells me again that he will send me a side of Beef.  I viewed Mr. Hazzletons (Barrett) Books.  He lends me Henry on the prophets, and Dr. Guise on the Spirit.  P.M. Wrote to my son Ebenezer at Fish Kill; and sent it per Squire Baker to Elias at Springfield for Conveyance.  Read Dr. Coopers pertinent and beautifull Sermon at the Commencement of the New Constitution of Government.
