1759 June 7 (Thursday). Was much hindred by the Affair of Mr. Noah How — yet he came not as was agreed. My Daughter Baldwin had appointed to come up from Boston, and with her Miss Hannah Wheat, and her Brother would wait on ‘em — but they did not come as was expected. It proves very difficult stirring by Reason of the Rain. Mr. How came near night — so that I was obliged to dismiss him and his Affair, Sending him up to Squire Baker to help him. After nine at Night Moses Nurse sends for me to Visit his Father who they think will not live out the Night. Went in the Storm — conversed and prayed with him. Returned about 11.
