1739 July 11 (Wednesday). Fine Day but no Body at Work except my little Boys. I walk’d down to Ensign Maynards, where was Mr. Tainter of Marlborough. P.M. he was at our House, as was also Mr. Caleb Rice. N.B. Mr. Rice acquainted me with the Affair of Lieutenant Ward of Sturbridge and one Smith in Leicester.
Deacon Joseph Tainter.
