1749 July 19 (Wednesday). I rode very early to Mr. Smiths at Marlborough for his Company to the Association Fast at Stow. His Wife and her sister went in their Chaise; and he himself rode with me. There were at Mr. Gardners this Meeting Messrs. Loring, Cushing, Martyn, Stone, Seccomb, Smith, Swift, Goss: and Mr. Hutchinson of Connecticut, preaching at Grafton. Mr. Gardner began the public exercise with an Excellent prayer. Mr. Stone preach’d a good, useful Sermon on Mal. 3.16. P.M. Mr. Goss pray’d and Mr. Cushing preach’d on Mat. 6.10. Thy Kingdom come. At Eve Mr. Martyn and I rode to Justice Whitman’s and Mr. Pierce’s where we lodg’d.
