1745 May 14 (Tuesday). Try’d Jonas Brighams Horse in the Chaise, but he was too furious — broke Whipple-Tree and threw me out, but without Hurt. D.G. But he was a good Horse in the saddle. I rode him to Cambridge. I stop’d at Colonel Wards to Condole under his great Afflictions. Stopp’d also at Mr. Pattersons in Sudbury with my wife’s Kinsman Williams, the school master there. Yet got to Cambridge Some time before Night. Mother Champney has had a very ill Turn and though much better than She was, especially last Friday, yet is very Weak and low.
Abraham Williams, Jr. (HC 1744), of Marlborough. He later became the fifth minister of the First Congregational Church, Sandwich, Mass., 1749-1784. SHG 11:498-502.
