March 7, 1760

1760 March 7 (Friday).  Adjournment of Town Meeting, to finish choosing Officers.  My wife to t’other House, and to see Mrs. Maynard.  The Committee of the Precinct had appointed to meet again in order to settle with me, but some failed and the rest were unprepared — so did nothing.  Am informed that Mr. William Williams of Weston dyed the Night before last.  May God sanctify it to all; to the Family especially.  May Ministers in a peculiar Manner make a right improvement of it!  O that I might my Self!
