May 29, 1738

1738 May 29 (Monday).  When the Rain in the Morning permitted, My Wife rode with me first to Mr. Joslins[1] which was a great hindrance to our Journey; then we proceeded to Marlborough, but the Rain prevailed to such a Degree that we were confin’d there all Night.  N.B. The Wooden Horse which some of the Rabble had fastened at Colonel Woods’s Door.  N.B. Proprietors Meeting but I had not Plot with me.  N.B. This Rain a great Mercy.

[1]Joseph Joslin of Westborough.
