October 16, 1738

1738 October 16 (Monday).  I Catechiz’d at the Meeting House a. and p.m. Rain a.m.  Did not clear off p.m.  Yet Mr. Pierpont was intent upon his Journey home.  Mr. David Buys[1] of New Glascow being here and going upwards, Mr. Pierpont was not to be persuaded to stay.  He design’d for Worcester tonight.
