1747 July 2 (Thursday). Rode to Boston. Visited my new marry’d kinswoman, Mrs. Cowell, after I had din’d with Brother Samuel. Note well, Settled accounts with Brother Samuel and paid all his Demands to this Day. I was exceeding griev’d to find that Mr. Joseph White, my sister Hannahs Brother in Law is dead. The Lord quicken all of us to be ready for that awful Time! I visited Mr. Brainerd missionary to the Indians who lies very low and like to die at Mr. Bromfields. I rode to Watertown and lodg’d at Captain John Tainters, but was not very well.
