Snow and the first arrival of winter. I went to the Office. Mr. Conant from Weston came in and passed a considerable time in talking about the lease of the farm there and many other matters appertaining to it. He demurred also about taking my horse which has puzzled me extremely. The expense of keeping him here is very great.

I went to vote for the remainder of the Representatives to be elected from Boston, and put in the whole Antimasonic ticket excepting myself in whose room I put T. K. Davis. I do not know what the probabilities are. Read more of the Parliamentary debates in 1774. Afternoon at home. Lord Bacon, and Virgil 5 and 6 books. Evening Tom Jones and Smith’s Moral Sentiments.1


A copy of the London, 1792, edition of Adam Smith’s Theory of Moral Sentiments is in MQA.
