July 7, 1747

1747 July 7 (Tuesday).  We went to the Council at Grafton.  Only 3 Churchs came, viz. the Reverend Mr. Lorings, Mr. Goddards[1] and ours.  We were entertain’d at Mr. Joseph Rice’s.  N.B. Grim and formidable Evils related concerning the Reverend Mr. Prentice’s[2] Conduct towards his Wife and the rest of the Separatists, so lately as last Lords Day Eve — Tore her Gown, Struck them that resisted him etc.  But among us to Day he is amicable and Sweet.
