1736 October 20 (Wednesday). David Batherick went away to Mr. Rogers’s. Rainy — yet Brother Hicks, and his wife and son, John, rode to Cambridge. His son rode my Horse. Ebenezer composed and Easier, and the Fever much lower. Deborah Sat up the former part of the night and I the latter. N.B. John Tainter (of Marlborough) was here in behalf of other Young Men of that Town to confer with me about my preaching to the private Society there.
John, son of Josheph and Thankful Tainter, b. Nov. 1, 1716 (MVR, 178).
