1744 December 29 (Saturday). I rode up to Worcester, calling at Mr. Cushings. One Brown from Reading, going to work at Mr. Eatons, my Company. Meet Captain Maynard coming out of Worcester just at or presently after sunsetting. I was directed to go to Colonel Chandlers, and accordingly there I was handsomely receiv’d by his Spouse, but She was in No Small anxiety about her Husband, who came not till 10 o’Clock but then the face of Care was chang’d to Joy.
Rev. Joshua Eaton of Spencer.
