September 15, 1738

1738 September 15 (Friday).  We (Scil. Mrs. Pierpont, my wife and I) din’d at Mr. Noyes’s.[1]  N.B. Mr. Edwards[2] of North Hampton with us.  P.M. Mr. Noyes, Mr. Edwards and I visited Mr. Isaac Dickerman,[3] a middle Batchelour, who was in a Languishment.  Visited Mr. Daniel Edwards[4] — the Rector — and went into the Library — still with Mr. Jonathan Edwards.  Mr. Woodbridge accompany’d us home to Mrs. Pierpoints.  I was much indispos’d although I kept about, and was in Variety of Company, but especially I was very uncomfortable in the Evening and through the Night.
