February 2, 1727

1727 February 2 (Thursday).  In the morning Jonathan How came and invited us to a fish dinner.  Accordingly we all went up to his house and Din’d with him on Haddock.  Here his Brother Hezekiah[1] of Westborough happen’d very Lukily, whom I implor’d to carry home my Fish and some necessarys.  When we came from Mr. Hows, we parted with Mr. Breck and rode to Mr. William Jonson’s[2] and thence up to my house, Messrs. Willards being with me.  They lodg’d with us.

[1]Hezekiah Howe was an original settler of Westborough.

[2]William Johnson of Marlborough.
