March 17, 1748

1748 March 17 (Thursday).  Mr. Welsteed preached the public Lecture on the Royalty of God our Salvation from (I think) Ps. 10.16.  Dined at Brother Samuels at evening at Dr. Parkmans, it proving raining I could not go to the South End — spent the Evening at Captain White’s and at Mr. Eliot’s.[1]  Lodged with my Kinsman.  His wife very weak and languishing in danger of death and very full of distress, being afraid to die.

[1]The Reverend Mr. Andrew Eliot of New North Church.
