1739 August 22 (Wednesday). Rainy forenoon. Din’d at Father Champneys. N.B. Father in a very disquieted and distracted State — from home by Night and by Day — has not been in Bed for scarcely a month together. P.M. Showery yet I rode to Boston. My Mother in a low, Sick, feeble, Dangerous State. My Kinsman Elias lodges Still at Captain Sharps — So that I Saw him not, this Journey. Lodg’d at Brother Elias’s.
