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.
