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 here. P.M. a great Deal of Discourse concerning the Assurance of every new Convert.
Francis Whipple and his wife Abigail joined the Westborough church by dismissal from the Third Church in Ipswich, Jan. 6, 1734 (WCR, 33).
