March 16, 1781

1781 March 16 (Friday).  The sheep that was lost in the late snow storm, was found and her Wool saved.  Mrs. Persis Adams came, and by word of mouth, gave some Reasons why She delayed the Means of Conviction and Reconcilement with her Husband.  The sum was, for substance that She could not get her Affair along because of the Public more urgent Matters, and She had not received the Returns which She expected.  I caused Mr. Adams’s late letter to be read to her.  At Eve Master Fish was here, has finished his School, supped here.
