1723 August 21 (Wednesday). In the Morning came Mr. Shattuck of Westborough to Invite me to preach in That Town. After a Pause of about an hour and Debating with him, I agreed; and took an Horse that he Said he had brought Down; and rode down to Boston to prepare for going with him. There were Three Score Mohawks arrived at Boston just before Noon. I returned to Cambridge and rode over to Champneys where my Horse was taken care of. N.B. Mr. Shattuck was sent over to Mr. Champney to Inquire for me.
