March 12, 1747

1747 March 12 (Thursday).  We drew up and sign’d a Letter to the Reverend Mr. Prentice of Grafton advising him to ask a Dismission.  When we parted Mr. Morse for Medfield, Mr. Martyn to go and preach at Shrewsbury first Parish, and I went to Marlborough to Mr. Williams’s to see my son Thomas, who seems well contented as yet; to Dr. Gotts where I din’d — to Deacon Andrew Rice’s to change several Bills, and call’d only at the Door of Dr. Smiths, he not being at Home.  N.B. Saw Deacon Rice at Mr. Jonathan Brighams.  In returning I call’d at Mr. Thomas Goodenow’s.  At Home I found that Mr. Edwards Whipple had Come back from Boston last night.  He sold my Calf for £3 2.6 without the Skin.  N.B. Old Mrs. Whipple and Mrs. Amy Maynard[1] here.
