March 23, 1774

1774 March 23 (Wednesday).  Mr. Forbes and Mr. Maynard go to Boston.  I visited and prayed with old Lt. Bruce and his Wife.  Went to Southborough Lecture. Dined at Mr. Stones.  Mr. Smith there and Mr. Mathew Bridge who preached — on Isa. 53.10.  Dr. Hemingway was among us: heard of the Sudden Death of the Rev. Mr. Thomas Jones, Minister of part of Woburn.  O may I be ready also!  N.B. Mr. Jacob Gibs requests of Mr. Stone and Me, that our Sermons at the Fast at his House, together with Mr. Fitch’s Some time after at the Same place, might be printed.  Returning at Eve found Squire Dorr and Master Taylor here.  The former lodged.
