September 29, 1742

1742 September 29 (Wednesday).  Variety of Company here.  Mrs. Whitney of Watertown, Mr. Noah Rices wife[1] of Sutton and others.  Mr. Jacob Green of Colchester.  Mr. Jonas Morse[2] of Marlborough bought a sow and 4 young Piggs of me.  Thomas gathering apples.  But my mind was much impressed with the Thoughts of Hopkinton Fast tomorrow.  I beg I may in a True Manner rely on God and receive Direction and Help from Him.

[1]Noah Rice was admitted to the church, July 18, 1736 (WCR, 43); his wife Hannah, Feb. 29, 1736 (WCR, 40); and they were dismissed to the church in Sutton, June 23, 1746 (WCR, 73).
