August 6, 1779

1779 August 6 (Friday).  I left my Study to visit Sister Cushing.  Mr. Moses Nurse has bought my son Breck’s fine mare so that (tho’ it was more tedious to me) I rode his grey Horse, to Shrewsbury, dined at Mr. Sumner’s.  Visit old Madam Cushing, who is sick of a Fever, etc., but is somewhat better today.  At her Request, I prayed with her.  I rode to Mr. Amos Parker’s.  In returning I stopt at Mr. Isaac Davis about soal leather.
