October 17, 1757

1757 October 17 (Monday).  Bright morn.  Deacon and I, accompanyed by Mr. Weld some Miles, rode to Wrentham.  Visit Mr. Bean, but especially my old Friend Mrs. Messenger.  Dined in Wrentham precinct with Mr. John Carns (who preaches there) at the House of Deacon Thurston.  Called at Mr. Frost’s at Mill River: and in the Evening at Mr. Stephen Sadlers in Upton.  Arrived at home much worryed and spent.  Yet was in Bed but a little while before I was called up again to go to Old Mrs. Maynard who was dying — and expired before I got there.  Prayed there; and it being near midnight and indisposed, I lodged there also.  N.B. my Wife took physic — 6 Lockyers Pills — which work much upon her.  N.B. Rev. David Turner of Palmers River, lately dead.
