1747 July 7 (Tuesday). We went to the Council at Grafton. Only 3 Churchs came, viz. the Reverend Mr. Lorings, Mr. Goddards and ours. We were entertain’d at Mr. Joseph Rice’s. N.B. Grim and formidable Evils related concerning the Reverend Mr. Prentice’s 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.
