May 25, 1736

1736 May 25 (Tuesday).  I rode to Southborough to the Funeral of old Mr. Moses Newton — aged ninety one or Two.[1]  About 12 o’Clock I proceeded on my Journey to Cambridge.  At Mr. Baldwins I found Mr. Cushing of Shrewsbury and Coll. Chandler[2] of Worcester, Major Pomroy and divers other Representatives.  We rode in Company till my parting to go to F. Champneys.  F. Champney very much disordered and has been ever since his Dear Daughters Decease.  My Daughter Mary not well yet of her breaking out.  Lodged at F. Champney’s.
