February 24, 1746

1746 February 24 (Monday).  Wind very high and Cold.  Broke fast at Colonel Chandlers.  Visited Mr. Crossby at the Jayl.  Return’d to the Colonel’s and din’d there.  P.M. return’d home calling in especially at Mr. Cushings, Major Keys and Colonel Nahum Ward.[1]  At this last was Mr. Martyn.[2]  N.B. Some free Conversation with them with reference to Westborough Town and Precinct Affairs: but fear what use they may make.  It shall be a warning.
