1738 September 5 (Tuesday). I [was] interrupted greatly in my purpose and Endeavours of this Day by the kindly intended visits of Mr. John Barrett and Mr. Benjamin Gerrish of Boston on their journey to Middleton in Connecticut, and of Mr. Cushing and his Wife. Vid. Natal.
He later moved to Halifax, Nova Scotia, and became a prosperous merchant.
Despite Parkman’s reference to the Natalitia there is no entry in it for this date.
