December 1, 1748

1748 December 1 (Thursday).  I rode over to Upton.  Forbush[1] went with me.  We din’d at Jonas Warrins.  Preach’d a Lecture on John 3.36, and baptiz’d Two Children, one of them the Child of Moses Wood, the other of Samuel Wood, their wives being Members of the Church.  Was at Captain Sadlers[2] his wife (who is my kinswoman) was very urgent to have me tarry all night, for it began to rain.  But I chose to get as near home as possible.  It was very dark and rainy before we got to Mr. James Bradish’s.  Then we lodg’d.
