July 12, 1781

1781 July 12 (Thursday).  I rode Mr. Isaac Parkers Horse to Southborough Fast.  Mr. Whitney prayed and very pertinently.  I preached on Numb. 27.16.17 which may God graciously Succeed!  At noon repair to Squire Smiths — Leave Messrs. Kellogg [and?] Bridge to perform the afternoon Service.  Col. Jonathan Ward rode with me to Marlborough to the Funeral of Col. Abraham Williams at which Mr. Grosvenor prayed and very agreeably.  The Colonel’s Will was read in the Evening.  I lodged at Mr. George Williams’s and Mr. John Williams of Rutland, lodged with me.  N.B. Mrs. Maynard came with her Coach to our House and took up her Aunt into it, and Mr. Brigham waited upon them to the Funeral.  They also returned home so.
