October 9, 1744

1744 October 9 (Tuesday).  My Wife and I with our little son William rode to Sudbury in Madam Sartels Chaise.  We got down about 12.  It was the Time of the Ministers Meeting at Mr. Cooks.[1]  While dinner was preparing I borrow’d Mr. Lorings Horse and rode to Mr. Farrars[2] at Concord and paid him £50 old Tenor and return’d to Ministers Meeting.  I read (for my Concio) the former part of my sermon on Heb. 13.17.

[1]Rev. William Cooke of Wayland.

[2]Deacon Samuel Farrar.  See Shattuck, Concord, 370.
