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 where was Mrs. Rebecca Adams and by and by Brother Samuell Parkman.
Mrs. Dorcas Bowes, cousin of Mrs. Parkman.
