1766 February 5 (Wednesday). Capt. Wood, Messrs. Jonah Warrin, Zebulun Rice, Isaac Adams here with a Measuring Chain, and say they are Measuring from my House to Mr. Dunlops, to find a Center for a school House Spot. I read old Dr. Mather’s Discourse on the Sin and Danger of Disobedience to the Gospel. May a Blessing attend it! Deacon Tainter comes from home on purpose to See how we were on’t for wood, as there were signs of a Storm and his Son, who provides is gone to Boston. May God reward him for his Care! At Eve Lt. Baker asks me to Marry his Son Silas (as he calls him) at his House, to morrow.
