1744 December 6 (Thursday). We accomplish’d the Arduous and Sorrowful Affair of Mr. Welds Separation and Dismission from his people. Mr. Hall went away Home before the Solemn reading of the Result. Mr. Peabody, Bucknam and I invited Mr. Weld to our Pulpits and we all offer’d to preach a Lecture to the people at proper seasons. Mr. Peabody and Bucknam to preach tomorrow. Deacon Newton return’d Home in the Night, but Mr. Whipple stay’d to accompany me.
Rev. Nathan Bucknam of East Medway(now Millis).
