1744 December 12 (Wednesday). My Wife and I rode to Marlborough. Call’d at Neighbour Matthias Rice’s, where was Mr. Thomas Ward. My wife was blooded by Dr. Gott, and we din’d with him. P.M. at Mr. Smiths where was Mr. Edward Barns. N.B. Talk of Boynes’s Conduct. I call’d at divers Places to hire money to pay Mr. Lull and Thomas Winchester but in Vain. We return’d by Matthias’s, and were kindly and handsomely entertained by them.
Rev. Aaron Smith of Marlborough.
