July 30 1751

1751 July 30 (Tuesday).  My Brother and I work at the New House, about the Glass.  Mr. Eliezer Rice call’d me hastily to Mrs. Pratt who is thought to be dying — yet she reviv’d by that I got to her.  Deacon Newton invit’d both me and my Brother to dine with him.  My Brother accept’d and din’d there accordingly but I din’d at home yet hasten’d to the Deacons, his son John being very ill.  P.M. Peter Newton burying.  After Burying we return’d to our work at the Puttying Windows.  Baldwin and his man lodg’d at the New House.  Brother and I came home.  The Waters are exceedingly rais’d by the heavy Rains of last night.
