1755 May 15 (Thursday). This Day 2 o’Clock p.m. was last Lords Day appointed to be the Time for the Catechetical Exercise to Young Women: but the Funeral aforesaid prevented it. I took very effectual Pains to Notifie the Young Women in the several parts of the Parish of it. And my wife and I rode down in the Chair to Marlborough. We stop’d and din’d at Colonel Williams as did Messrs. Cushing and Martyn and their wives. The Bearers at the Funeral were the Reverend Messrs. Loring and Cushing, Gardner, Martyn, Goss and I. Mr. Cushing pray’d, Mr. Loring having a Cold. We return’d safe home at Evening.
The Reverend John Martyn of Northborough.
Israel Loring of Sudbury.
John Gardner of Stow.
Thomas Goss of Bolton.
