July 25, 1751

1751 July 25 (Thursday).  Ebenezer and Thomas Spend the forepart of the Day in mending the Fence at the Island.  Molly with Sir Forbush, to wait on the Reverend Mr. Fish and his Bride to Upton.  I rode over to Mr. Martyns, and borrow’d his Chair, in which I went to Marlborough to Dr. Gotts for my Wife.  The Doctor was insensible as in a Dying State.  We attempted to come away, but when we were dining at Mr. Smiths, came a Messenger that the Doctor was dying.  We return’d and tarry’d till after 4 p.m. and left him Still breathing.  Came home in Comfort.  To God the Glory!  My Brother sett Glass to Day.
