August 28, 1744

1744 August 28 (Tuesday).  Visited Captain Forbush who is sick of a Fever.  A Council of Five Churches sat at Grafton, The Churches of Lancaster, Oxford, East Sudbury, Waltham and Southborough, being call’d by the agrieved only.  I Hear that the North and south side of this Town have employ’d Major Jones[1] of Hopkinton to measure the Roads of this Town — and that they begin to Day.
