1726 August 4 (Thursday). I bought Mr. Willard on the Catechism, price 55 Shillings. My appointment was to go back to Cambridge this morning and to proceed as far on my Journey as the Time would permit. I sat tediously waiting for my Horse, but not coming I neither went to Lecture nor any whither else all Day. About Sun setting Brother came and then I came to Cambridge.
