1779 March 31 (Wednesday). Mr. Bradshaw sett out for Cambridge. I rode to visit Mr. Stone, of Southborough. Dined there. He tells me his son-in-law Bangs of Hardwick is dead. P.M. I went with Mr. Stone to the Meeting House where Mr. Luke Wilder held a Singing. In returning, I borrowed and brought home Clark’s Lives of eminent Persons Fol. Called at Mr. Gale’s, his Father being poorly. At Mr. Andrews — have not been there since their Marriage till now. The roads are exceeding Dirty, the snow melting apace. This Ride was followed by Bad Cramp in the Night. May the Lord pardon the Sins of this Month, and spare me etc.
