1774 October 18 (Tuesday). Went to Ministers Meeting at Marlborough. Mr. Smith prayed. Conversation on the publick, increasing Distresses prevented the Concio: but Sang the praises of God: Hymn 66. I returned at Evening in Safety. D.G. N.B. On the road at Eve, Saw Mr. Walker at Southborough, who gave me Account of what he met with at the Fortification at Boston — his Complaint — the Court martial, at which was the Trial of the Offenders; and the satisfaction given him.
