April 11, 1769

1769 April 11 (Tuesday).  Was much disappointed by Mr. Newton who brings me no money though he knows I am going to Boston — and what I have got can’t answer my present Necessity.  Yet I undertake my Journey.  Call to take old Mrs. Bradishs Testimony to what I have drawn up concerning the Captivity of the Rices.  Call also at Mr. Ebenezer Chamberlains (junior), at Mr. Moses Parkers that I might see and talk with Mary Beeton, who has fled from her Fathers House: found her and talked with her at Mr. Duntons.  Old Mrs. Phillips being ill at Mr. Collins’s, at his earnest Request Stopped and prayed with her.  Dined at Mr. Stones.  P.M. Urge my way — called at Mr. Bridge’s at Framingham and at Mr. Nat. Goddards at Weston.  Reached Mr. Cushings at Waltham but he was gone to a Council at Concord — Yet I lodged there.
