October 11, 1781

1781 October 11 (Thursday).  Mr. Fuller and his Wife left us to return home through Billerica.  Messrs. Benjamin Stone and Samuel Crosby came, dined here.  Mr. Stone informs me of Mr. Fairbanks public Marriage last week, in the Meeting House, Solemnized by Rev. Sumner.  I wrote to Rev. Appleton by Mr. Crosby, concerning Mr. Enoch Rice and his Wife, their penitance and Confession.  Capt. Morse brought me a large Cheese, which weighted 25 lb.  May God reward him for his Generosity!  and may I be enabled to make a good Use of this and of every other Bounty bestowed upon me!
