August 2, 1726

1726 August 2 (Tuesday).  Our Mother Champney with my Child rode to Cambridge, stopping only at Livermores.[1]  Got down about 5 p.m. though we set out at almost 10 a.m.  We had a comfortable Journey.  But we found sister Ruth ill.  Brother Samuel Parkman happened to come up here and return’d again.  Sister Lydia[2] and I walk’d over to Brother Hicks’.[3]  She went to the Docters and then we returned home.
