May 5, 1742

1742 May 5 (Wednesday).  My Wife rode to Cambridge.  I rode with her as far as Marlborough, but both of us soaked through with an heavy Shower in the woods between Westborough and Southborough back of Lieutenant Brighams Pond.  I attended the fast Exercises at Old Capt. Brighams, which were occasioned by the dull, unactive and very insensible state he was fallen into and had been in for more than a Year: I preached on Mic. 7.7, Mr. Smith having prayed before sermon.  In the latter Exercise I prayed and Mr. Prentice of Grafton preached upon Ezek. 36.37.  I returned home at Eve.
