1774 February 2 (Wednesday). It being a good Season for sleighing My Son John and I rode to Mr. Stone’s, Southborough but Mr. Stone was unhappily gone to Marlborough. We Dined with Mrs. Stone, as did Mr. Newell, a Candidate. I wrote and Sent a Letter to Mr. John Tyler School Master at Marlborough, that his Watch which he had lost, is found, and in my possession. Returning at Eve called to See old Mr. Abraham Gale at his Son Abijah’s. When I got home found here my Son Alexander and his Wife, with both their Children, Robert-Breck and Alexander, in a double Sleigh. Also Mr. [David?] Clark from Ashburnham to See his Son Benjamin — and he lodges here.
