1745 October 14 (Monday). Early to Mr. Grouts to look at some Beef — he came to look of one of my own Cows to pass his Judgment. I took his advice and determin’d on my own. My Wife and I rode to Mrs. Gotts Funeral. Mr. Smith though at the Funeral, was not well and could not Pray. I was oblig’d (though it was so sudden) to pray. We return’d at Eve. N.B. Captain Hapgood of Shrewsbury bury’d to Day also. N.B. Colonel Ward said, of Captain Hapgoods repenting that he had talk’d so much against New Light People etc.
Thomas Hapgood d. Oct. 5, 1745. Ward, Shrewsbury 306.
