1723 August 15 (Thursday). Very Early we prepared (viz. by Prayers, Eating, etc.), and Set out. Stop’d at Jenisons. We call’d again at Willsons, and next at Warham William’s, who had been Sick very lately. We din’d at Each’s. Thence to Boston, But at Charleston Mr. Rice parted with me. I invited him home with me, but he had Business for an avocation. At home I found My Sister Elius (as we Sometimes call her) with a Child that was born the Fourth of this Instant. We Miss’d of being at Lecture, but I walked up to Mr. Edwards’s Shop to hear the News, and see my Friends. At Night our Society Met at Barretts, at which I first pray’d and Mr. Eliot Discoursed from James 1.5, and I Concluded. Thence I went to my Father’s where I Lodged.
