August 11, 1740

1740 August 11 (Monday).  My Wife rode with me to Marlborough.  I visited Colonel Woods[1] who was much indispos’d by Hydropic and Asthmatic Disorders.  I din’d with Mr. Smith, where also din’d Mr. Cushing and Master Loring.  We visited the Colonel after Dinner and were also at the Doctors and at Captain Williams.[2]  While we were at the Captain’s a great storm of Rain arose.  We rode home in the Evening after the Rain.
