1744 May 23 (Wednesday). Rainy Day, but old Mr. Rice lys in so low a state and sending for me I ventur’d to go and See him. Visited also Jonathan Tainter in his Waste. When I return’d home Mr. Breck from Springfield was here, but much indispos’d by a Sore Throat. At Eve Dr. Breck came. N.B. The Doctor has bought at Worcester and begins to build there.
