November 26, 1742

1742 November 26 (Friday).  Mr. Prentice of Grafton came to see me.  I enquired whether he had sought Reconcilement with Mr. Loring of Sudbury, as he had engaged at Rutland?  He could not say he had.  He brought me his Church’s Desire and his own, to assist them in a Fast next Thursday come sennight.  But I insisted upon his reconcilement with Mr. Loring.  N.B. Mr. Hall had told him and his wife that at his late visit to me, I received him but Coldly.  At Eve Brother Hicks returned from Cambridge but brought not Molly.  She was still confined with illness at Sister Bettys at Boston.  Brother Hicks lodged here.
