1759 August 29 (Wednesday). Dr. Gott rode with me to Sturbridge, where I went to see Mr. Rice, who is sick. I found him very low indeed. We dined there — And by reason of their great Importunity I tarryed all Night. N.B. Dr. Upham came to see him — and Dr. Gott had his Company to Brookfield. N.B. Among the Company that came in to See Mr. Rice, came Lieut. Fisk, who was a principal Separate. With him I had some Discourse concerning Ruling Elders etc.
