December 26, 1765

1765 December 26 (Thursday).  This Day is appointed for the Marriage of Rev. Mr. Asaph Rice, to Miss Polly Morse.  I am invited and my wife also (as well as my Daughters) but I dare not venture, under so much indisposition and Pain.  Dr. Throop and Master Cushing wait on Sarah and Suse in a Sleigh, to Mr. Morse’s.  May God grant the Bridegroom and Bride to be espoused to Jesus Christ!  And the whole Company to have true, and increasing Joy!
