July 3, 1738

1738 July 3 (Monday).  Undertook to wait upon my Honored Aged Mother to Cambridge.  At the widow Harringtons[1] in Marlborough we were oblig’d to Stop; my Mother could not ride upon the Pillion which we us’d any longer.  She lay down and was refresh’d.  We borrow’d Mrs. Harringtons Pillion and remounted.  We had a prosperous Journey by the will of God and got down in season to Father Champney’s where we lodged.

[1]Mrs. David Harrington.
