May 15, 1738

1738 May 15 (Monday).  Town Meeting at Marlborough to choose a Representative, and church meeting to choose a Pastor.  My Business lay with divers persons at both the Meeting House and School House (at the former the Town, at the latter the church met), So that I was unavoidably up there — but lest I Should fall under some Reproach I refus’d to pray with the Church notwithstanding their Sollicitous Messages one after another.  N.B. Discourse with Mr. John Sherman about Mr. Brecks pew which some had disorderly and clandestinely pull’d down in Marlborough Meeting House.  Having call’d at Captain Warrens I returned home.
