1736 September 2 (Thursday). Rainy. Mr. Gee Lecture on 2 Cor. 6.18. Dined at Brother Samuels. N.B. Brother William’s Second Daughter married this Eve to Mr. Samuel Bradshaw of Medford. In the Company was Mr. Hooper, a Scotch Gentleman who had lately begun to preach in Boston, and greatly cryed up. It was not So pleasant and agreeable a Time to me, as I might have hop’d and desired it to have been; but on account of the great Suspence the Affair at Mr. P____ts is left in; and on Account of the distressing illness of sister Elizabeth who grows much worse, and that Parkman is brought from College this Eve in a Chaise Sick of the Distemper. God be graciously pleased to visit, direct and Support that afflicted Family, and vouchsafe salvation! Mr. Webb went from the Wedding to Brother Elias’s. I lodged at Brother Samuel’s.
Sarah, daughter of William Parkman.
