October 4, 1781

1781 October 4 (Thursday).  At Ensign Aaron Warrins request I rode over to his House, and Mr. Fish and his Wife being there also, we dined together.  He told me Mr. Adams had been with him, but that he would not comply.  Mr. Fish preached a Seasonable and useful Sermon on the Occasion of the Ensigns Recovery, from Isa. “The Living, the Living,” etc.  When I returned home found my son Ebenezer and Grand Daughter Betsey Baldwin, who were come from Boston and from Cape Ann.  Mr. Jonathan Wilkins, a young preacher, visits Mr. Brigham and lodges.  Mr. Brigham took care of the Husking and of the Huskers.  N.B. Among the Letters which Ebenezer brought from Boston is Another Letter from Mr. Quincy, dated Sept. 27.  And a considerable Packet from Mr. Moore inclosing his Notes of his Anniversary Sermon at Plymouth, for the Year 1780.
