1736 June 19 (Saturday). At Coll. Woods’s a little while in the Morning. At the Widow Bents and brought from thence 118 Skeins of worstead spun by her out of 6 1/2 pound of Carded Worsted. Paid at 4d. per skein — and paid her £1.10s in part for her Work. Hastened home before noon to finish my preparations for the Sabbath but I had written one Exercise wholly and a good part of another and studied the Chief of the matter of it before I went from home. Hot, parching weather. Divers persons have been with me this week to be Examined — Eliezer Rice, Hezekiah Pratt, and Rachel wife of Hezekiah Pratt. Mr. Bowmans wife also came yesterday just when I was mounting my Horse, so I could not finish Examination of her. N.B. Brother Josiah Newton brought the Petition of 11 Brethren for a Church Meeting on Mr. Peres Rice’s Affair. Ensign Maynard Stone walling Still. David finished his Half-hilling and is at work upon the Trough for the N. [W. Corner?] of my [Large?] part of my [House?].

Hezekiah Pratt did not join the church.
Rachel, wife of Hezekiah Pratt, joined the Westborough church on July 11, 1736 (WCR, 43).
