February 19, 1728

1728 February 19 (Monday).  I rode to Boston to Dr. Mathers Funerall.  It look’d very Sad — almost as if it were the funerall of the Country.  A very Sad Breach.  Of for Sufficient portions of Gods Spirit upon surviving ministers!  Vast Concourse Exceeding long Procession and numberless Spectators.  Every heart Sad.  This Evening at cousin Dorcas Bows[1] where was Mrs. Rebecca Adams and by and by Brother Samuell Parkman.

[1]Mrs. Dorcas Bowes, cousin of Mrs. Parkman.
