July 14, 1749

1749 July 14 (Friday).  All the Morning perplex’d and fatigu’d about my Horse, which had got out of the Pasture and could not be found; till Sir Appleton[1] took his Fathers Horse and rode to Watertown; the Horse was found in old Lieutenant Coolidges Yard.  I did not get away from Cambridge till noon.  Call’d at Captain Sharps — where was Mr. Cotton Brown.  I proceeded to Boston.  My Brethren well etc.  Lodg’d at Brother Samuels.  My Horse at Mrs. Keggells.  Molly a poor Night, but better Morning.
