1755 May 30 (Friday). Set myself to hire Money in order to Purchase of the Reverend Mr. Harding of Brookfield for Ebenezer: but in vain. Visited Colonel Saltonstall at his Brother Cooks — he is exceeding low, and much distress’d. Pray’d with him and commended him to God. Visited Mr. Foxcroft — din’d with my Kinsman Winter. Mr. William Winter and I go to old Mr. Owen Harris to hire money, but the attempt there also was without any success. Visited Mr. Sutton who Shew’d me a mathematical Bellows. N.B. at the 3 Horse Shooes enquired after Francis Fogery — or Allagajo — could not find nor hear of Him — but there was Bartholomew — and Captain Lane an Interpreter. Lodg’d at Miss Dudley’s.
