August 4, 1726

1726 August 4 (Thursday).  I bought Mr. Willard on the Catechism,[1] 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.
