1760 June 17 (Tuesday). My Kinsman and his Wife leave us to go as far as their Brother Briants at Sudbury to Day — after which they will (by the Leave of Providence) proceed to Stoneham. The Company meet for enlistment. I went to ministers Meeting at Shrewsbury — which was but thin. Messrs. Barret, Martyn, Stone, Smith and Morse being absent. But Mr. Loring there. He wanted Advice concerning his Changing with Mr. Eliab Stone, a Young Gentleman who keeps school in Sudbury and preaches for Mr. Cook — but he has not been examined. I asked the Associations Advice respecting my baptizing Children on the Right of Foster Parents. I had reference to Mrs. How who desires privilege for her son Noahs Children. I also laid before them the Case of Joslin who wants Baptism for John Maynards Child. They advised me to proceed as to the former — and with the latter when I shall judge I have waited upon the Proper Parents a fit Space. I lodged at Mr. Cushings with Mr. Loring. Mr. Maccarty gave a Concio on Jam. 5.19.20.
