1756 May 28 (Friday). I Strove to the utmost to get up to Mr. Cottons at Newton to preach his Lecture but could not. Capt. Job Bradford and my Kinswoman Betty Parkman accompanyed me out of Town, and rode with me to Cambridge. N.B. I endeavoured to pay Brother Champney my Debt to him (contracted on Mollys and Lucys Account chiefly), but was disappointed by A Johannes wanting weight, which Johannes I gave Mr. Nathan Maynard (at his earnest request to change) 8 Dollars for. Rode to Watertown, to Mr. Storers and Master Nat. Harringtons. Lodged at my Brother in Law’s, Mr. Joseph Harringtons.
