March 27, 1742

1742 March 27 (Saturday).  Received a Message from Lieutenant Holloways that last Eve Ebenezer Shooting off a little Musket at a Partridge was in utmost Danger by the Gun’s bursting.  The praise to God for such a Deliverance.  Let his Life be to God!  N.B. Mr. James Fay and Mr. Francis Whipple[1] here.  P.M. a great Deal of Discourse concerning the Assurance of every new Convert.

[1]Francis Whipple and his wife Abigail joined the Westborough church by dismissal from the Third Church in Ipswich, Jan. 6, 1734 (WCR, 33).
