1736 August 7 (Saturday). This morning proved very lowery — about 11 or 12 I took leave of my Friends and went over to Charleston to prosecute my Journey home in Case that the Rain should not increase — but it increased greatly and detained me till about one o’Clock at Mr. Larkins. Then I gave up the Matter of my Journey and I returned to Boston. P.M. I was dull and indisposed — Head ach etc. Lodged at Brother Elias’s — for my Mothers house was in the Confusion of White washing.
