July 20, 1740

1740 July 20 (Sunday).  In the Morning I walk’d with Dr. Smith to See Solomon Hapgood, second son of Captain Hapgood[1] who was very bad of the Throat Distemper.  I preach’d on Hos. 6.1 a. and p.m.  After Services Mr. Cushing came home, and went to Captain Hapgoods — But the sun being sett I returned home.

[1]Thomas Hapgood of Shrewsbury.  Ward, Shrewsbury, 306.
