1780 May 29 (Monday). Rec’d a Letter from Rev. Whitney to request me to dine with him and to attend the Raising a New House for him. In riding over there met with Mr. McCarty — he was going to Boston. But turned about and went with me to Northborough. Mr. Stone came also. We dined at Mrs. Briggs, and there Supped. Mr. Maccarty went to Boston. Mr. Stone and I went to the Raising. I prayed and gave the Psalm (Ps. 127). Mr. Stone made the last prayer. No Evil occurrence. Blessed be God! Mr. Elijah Brigham was my Company home. An Excellent Frame, and a great Company.
