1736 September 28 (Tuesday). Mr. Haven and I set out for New Medfield though in the Rain. Deacon Rice and his son Josiah overtook us upon the Road. Mr. Haven because the Rain continued, went to Mr. Goddards of Leicester, but we (with Mr. Cushing) to Richardsons and thence up to New Medfield — got there Comfortably in the Evening about 7 or 8 o’Clock, and had very Comfortable Lodging in that New Place.
Josiah, son of Calleb and Mary Rice, b. Dec. 30, 1700 (MVR, 157).
