September 28, 1736

1736 September 28 (Tuesday).  Mr. Haven and I set out for New Medfield though in the Rain.  Deacon Rice and his son Josiah[1] overtook us upon the Road.  Mr. Haven because the Rain continued, went to Mr. Goddards of Leicester, but we (with Mr. Cushing) to Richardsons and thence up to New Medfield — got there Comfortably in the Evening about 7 or 8 o’Clock, and had very Comfortable Lodging in that New Place.
