1738 August 21 (Monday). In the forenoon I went over to Mr. Jonathan Whipples to desire him to be with me at Mr. Samuel Fay’s and sent Ebenezer to Ensign Forbush’s to request the Same of him. I proceeded to Mr. Winchesters by whom I sent to Boston, and then Return’d to Captain Fays to meet with Mr. Whipple and Ensign Forbush, The former of which was there. I went down to Mr. Samuel Fays and Mr. Whipple came to me. I us’d all the most Serious and affectionate Methods with Mr. Fay and improv’d Mr. Whipples assistance to compose a Reconcilement, but in vain. Upon which I took a formal Leave of him. N.B. In going up to Mr. Winchesters I met Mr. Campbel, Mr. Hall, Captain Larnard etc. going to a Council at Concord. When I had been at home some time Captain Warrin and his wife came, upon the Affair of their Relations preparitory to their admission into the Church.
