October 10, 1744

1744 October 10 (Wednesday).  We rode to Mr. Foxcrofts[1] and my Deeds from Mr. Lull were enter’d to be recorded.  Proceeded to Boston.  My aged Mother much more Comfortable than for a long Time.  Blessed be God.  We din’d with her.  N.B. The Sorrowful Shocking News by Brother Samuel of Cousen Elias’s[2] Fall into uncleanness with Mrs. Sally Hill.  The Lord Sanctifie this sore Trial for our deep humbling!  P.M. I was at Dr. Sewals.  We lodg’d at Brother Samuels.
