1772. Decr. 24. Thurdsday.
Major Martin, Mr. Blowers and Mr. Williams dined with me—all agreable.
This Day I heard that Mr. Hancock had purchased 20 Writs <
of Mr. Goldthwait>, for this Court, of Mr. S. Quincy.—Oh the Mutability of the legal, commercial, social, political, as well as material World! For about 3 or 4 Years I have done all Mr. Hancocks Business, and have waded through wearisome, anxious Days and Nights, in his Defence.— But Farewell!—
