June 28, 1742

1742 June 28 (Monday).  Very letting weather so that it is ill tending of Hay.  I rode over to Hopkinton at the request of Isaac How who lay in a low Languishment.  His state of mind feared to be very dreadful because of his Insensibility of the amazing wrath of God and being So Comfortable in the Apprehensions of Death notwithstanding his Impenitence.  Many had expected me to preach but I received no hint of his Desiring any thing of that — besides that there was no intimations from Rev. Mr. Barrett especially of any Thing of it.  Returned home at Eve; marrying Eleazer Williams at his Fathers in my way.
