1728 March 6 (Wednesday). Brother Champney went home. In the Afternoon Mr. Thomas Forbush was here on the Business of his Children, parted quiet though there had been Some warm Discourse. Just after I was got to Bed (about 3/4 after Eleven) we were afrighted by the awfull sound of the Earthquake. All that were awake heard it. I lay awake an hour and half, but hearing nothing I Compos’d to sleep. God be prais’d from my Soul for his wonderous Deliverances. Let me never forget his Benefits.
Prominent early settler of Westborough.
