February 22, 1746

1746 February 22 (Saturday).  The Day somewhat moderate.  Esquire Williams accompany’d to Worcester — and then I left him to prosecute his Journey to Brookfield.  I unhappily miss’d of Mr. Emmerson[1] who came from Worcester to preach at Westborough whilst I went there to gratifie the Request of the Committee at Worcester in administering the Ordinance of Baptism among them.  Lodg’d at Mr. Eatons.[2]
