1749 January 2 (Monday). Another very Cold Day. Mr. Hall of Sutton here with a Letter from the first Church there requesting me to assist in a Fast next Week on Account of Various Difficultys among them by reason of the Separations increasing and on Consideration of a Late Council at Oxford, met at the Request of one of the members of the 1st Church in Sutton (one Davidson) under the Censure of Said Church. But I was oblig’d to refuse, both because of my own uncertain Health, and my wife’s present Circumstances. The widow Sarah Forbush here to work for us — Spinning. Ebenezer is Sledding Wood.
The Reverend David Hall.
Mrs. Samuel Forbush.
