1747 February 1 (Sunday). I had so mislaid the first Leaf of the sermon which I design’d for the forenoon that I was not able to find it when people were coming to meeting, So that I was oblig’d to take up an old sermon and go to meeting. It was that on Eph. 1.4. On Election. P.M. I found the Leaf I had mislaid and preach’d on Dan. 2.35 last Clause. Captain Tainter of Watertown and his Brother the Lieutenant din’d here together with Mr. Jenison. N.B. people came, many of them upon Ratchetts to Meeting.
Deacon Simon Tainter of Westborough.
Racket, a word used for snow shoe.
