September 15, 1736

1736 September 15 (Wednesday).  Mr. John Tucker having proved utterly unfaithfull to his promise to come up to me to set my Pump to rights, I went to him this Morning and he renewed his Engagement to me that he would not fail to be with me in a Day or Two.  I rode to Cambridge and dined there; and thence to Marlborough to Dr. Gott’s and lodged There.  N.B. Mr. Billings, of Westborough my Company from Baldwin’s; for he had been at the General Meeting of Petitioners at Concord, who waited upon the General Courts Committee for granting and laying out Townships.  He brings but a very discouraging account of their proceedings.
