1755 March 2 (Sunday). In the Morning he rode up to Westborough and preach’d here. I preach’d at Southborough on Zech. 1.5 and John 12.35, occasion’d by the late Death of the Venerable Mr. Stone of Harwich Aet. 88. At Eve I return’d home — call’d to see Mr. Ephraim Bruce’s Child which he told me Yesterday had a Pin Stuck across the Throat — but now they can’t tell what is come of it — they suppose it Swallow’d.
The Reverend Nathaniel Stone (Harvard 1690) had served Brewster (Harwich), 1700-1755.
