1724 October 12 (Monday). I return’d to Westborough. Mrs. Wood at her house discours’d about Some Methods for the people in their provision for Ordination. In the Evening came a Committee to treat with my Landlord about providing, etc. There was much Caring about bringing up my Goods.
Memorandum. I formed Letters (by the Towns Desire) to be Sent to Severall Churches, (viz. Boston to Mr. Webb, Framingham Mr. Swift, Marlborough Mr. Breck, Lancaster Mr. Prentice and (a Letter from myself to ask him to preach), Sudbury Mr. Loring, and Mendon Mr. Dorr). These were drawn up on the 9th Day.
Mrs. Benjamin Wood.
