September 4, 1758

1758 September 4 (Monday).  Mr. Francis Whipple comes and acquainted me that old Mr. Green dyed on Saturday evening, is to be buryed to day, and that I am desired to attend the Funeral at 3 this afternoon.  Thomas Bond works for me, raking and poling Hay in Newton Meadow.  And my son Thomas also assists p.m.  N.B. Cousen Brigham rode with me to the Burial of Father Green.  Monsieur LeBlanc was there.  One Thing especially was remarkable in Father Green in his Life Time, viz. his most reverent manner of attending divine worship.  I shall always remember his Seriousness and the Solemnity which was evident throughout his whole man.  I wish we might always imitate it.
