November 6, 1767

1767 November 6 (Friday).  They leave us, after Breakfast to go to Oxford.  Cousin Samuel Trask, who breakfasts with us, accompanys them I suppose, to Sutton.  Mr. Aaron Nurse here hooping several Casks.  Sarah who went to Mr. Richard Martyns before Ordination is brought home.  John goes to Mr. Jonathan Grouts, and brings a Barrell of Cyder.  At Eve, came Mr. Jonathan How to call me to Mr. Hannaniah Parkers, one of their little sons being nigh to Death.  I went; the Man was gone to Southborough.  The Woman was much distressed.  All five of the Children were ill with Fever and Canker.  Little Winslow was exceeding low, but was reviv’d from the dying Symptoms it had been under.  I prayed.  Mr. Parker came home.  Coll. Ezra Taylor overtook me, as I returned — he informed me that Mr. Frink’s Application to the Quarter sessions for his Sallery since his Dismission, fell through.
