January 17, 1747

1747 January 17 (Saturday).  Mr. Chamberlin came home from Boston.  He informs me that my Kinsman Elias[1] was marry’d on New Years Night.  May they be espous’d to Jesus Christ and live together as Heirs of the grace of Life.  He brought me also a pair of stout Deer Skin Gloves from Mr. Stansbury in Boston.

[1]Parkman’s nephew, Elias Parkman of Boston, married Abigail White.
