October 15, 1767

1767 October 15 (Thursday).  A shock of an Earthquake about 11 a.m.  I rode to Mr. Joseph Harrington’s (his Wife being in such Circumstances that She could not well come here): examined her — at least in part.  Dined there.  P.M. after further Discourse with her, left her that She might take further Pains with her self.  I called at Mr. Whitneys to see Miss Love, who is got about again — went to Capt. Jonathan Fay’s, about Cyder.  Visit old Mrs. Byles, and prayed with her.  When I returned at Eve, was informed that Mr. Peter Whitney had been here.  He has brought a Letter from the Church and people of Northborough, desiring assistance in his Ordination.  Miss Kezia dined here and then returned to Medfield.
