1757 December 6 (Tuesday). Mr. John Searl, preacher at Stoneham came to see me and broke fast with us at Mr. Briants. We rode to his (Mr. Searls) Lodgings to Dinner. My Kinsman and his Wife in their Chair accompanyed me from thence some Miles, to the Road to Medford. I visited my Class-mate Turill. At Charleston Ferry ventured to ferry over — did safely. William Bowes Parkman took Care of my Horse. Lodged at Brother Williams.
