Went to Rondout to get some rigging for my old Franklin which we intend to put up in the Parlor. John McEntee told me that Cornell was very disagreeable to him and threatened to take his work from him and John thinks he is going to build a foundry. He feels a little discouraged about it. We had a talk about the Rooras troubles and also Capt. Abbeys and we both concluded that it was the part of Wisdom to try to make some provision for old age.
