1726 March 10 (Thursday). This morning, though not very good weather, I went to Marlborough to Lecture, But Mr. Cushing both pray’d and preach’d notwithstanding I was sent to, for I was not very well and I was glad I could persuade him. His Text was Mat. 11.12. We went down to Mr. Woods and it became very Stormy and rain’d hard. Mr. Thomas was with us with many of his diverting amusements and adventures in London. Mr. Woods presented me a Girdle. Mr. Cushing Lodg’d with me at Mr. Brecks.
