September 22, 1736

1736 September 22 (Wednesday).  Mr. Joseph Stretton came from Marlborough with Mr. Ephraim Brighams Request to visit and pray with them at the Funeral of their Only Child[1] — and I went with him.  N.B. As I went to Marlborough I visited Aaron and Samuel Hardys Familys, whose Children, especially the Latter’s, were sick of the Distemper.  Called at Coll. Wards and Mr. Amsdens as I returned in the Evening.  Very Cool Evening.  N.B. David and [Ebenezer?] Maynard digging stones.
