1746 January 14 (Tuesday). Our Company prosecuted their Journey to Boston. Sent Thome to Dr. Gotts and Mr. Britons. Dr. Gott came, but my Wife was better. Thanks to God! Neighbour Samuel Hardy came late a.m. to Swingle Flax. P.M. he join’d with a Number that were here to get me some Wood, for Lieutenant Tainter and Neighbour Samuel Harrington were here yesterday while I was absent, and rigg’d up my Sled, and they Two, with Neighbour Hezekiah Pratt (who brought a Team of Oxen), Beriah Rice, and Eleazer Rice, came and got me a Pile of Wood. N.B. Neighbour Sam Hardy join’d them. P.M. At Eve we sent for Suse home from Captain Maynards.
John Britain of Marlborough.
