1723 August 26 (Monday). I expected Barrett and was very Impatient that he did not come. In the Evening Mr. Ward (as I remember) and one or two more were to See me, and he Appointed to go with me tomorrow to Hopkinton. Accordingly on the
[1723 August?] 26. I was sent for in the Evening to visit a sick Young Woman at Mr. Tomlin’s. I went and pray’d with her.
[No date.] I walked to the Meeting House with a Pistol in my Hand by reason of Danger of the Indians. When I return’d was much affrighted with the Sight of an Indian as I suppos’d; but drawing nigher I perceiv’d it was my Landlord. In the afternoon about 4 o’Clock, there was an Alarm in the North and people hastened with their Arms, But it came to little.
