October 29, 1772

1772 October 29 (Thursday).  I rode to Marlborough.  Called at Coll. Williams.  Got a Copy of Record of my 13 Acres and 14 Rods.  Dined at Mr. Smiths.  Mr. Stone was there.  I preached the Brigham Lecture on Prov. 4.10.  Had a Letter from Mr. Jacob Biglow (instead of Seeing him there) by which I can have no hope of any Acquaintance with him till the Day of Ordination.  Mr. Smith takes advice relative to a Dismission.  When I came home, found my Son William here.  Sophy to Upton and brings Miss Hannah Fish to work here.  N.B. My Young Cattle were drove home from Coi’s Hill, by Neighbour Newton and Six yearlings of Son Baldwins.
