June 20, 1782

1782 June 20 (Thursday).  We expected Mr. Whitney of Brookline in Connecticut from Harvard: but his Horse had got away, and therefore he came not but Mr. Peter Whitney and his Wife came and Spent the p.m.  The World is at this juncture in Tosses about Mr. Eli: who heads a Mob in the County of New Hampshire, and who was put into Springfield Jayl, but was last Lords Day, forcibly let out, and absconds.
