1756 June 16 (Wednesday). Sir Crawford brought us a Letter from Mr. Maccarty, and one that Mr. Maccarty had sent to Coll. Chandler; on which also that Coll. had written his own Recommendation of him to the Gentlemen who were empowered to put in Chaplains in the Army. In brief, a Certificat was drawn, and I suppose signed, according to Vote, by the Moderator. I hastened away after Lecture and came to Ensign Harringtons who had Strongly insisted upon my being there to Day. It being training Day, and he treats the Company. I understand also that it is training Day over all the Province, and all men shew Arms.
At Eve I was called to go up to Esq. Bakers, there being an Indian woman there, one Peggy Read from Woodstock, who was grievously exercised with Fitts. She was in a Fitt while I was there, and divers of the Select Men. When I had prayed etc., I returned home.
