January 7, 1727

1727 January 7 (Saturday).  Mr. Barrett has appointed to Change on the Sabbath approaching, but I have heretofore met with so many disappointments there, I was very full of concern lest I should be put to some Difficulty.  However I rode over to Hopkinton, which when I came to I was wel Satisfy’d in finding him ready to ride to Westborough.  Here was Elder Barrett[1] and Mr. Charles Coffin, which made me to be Chearfull again.
