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.
