1747 July 21 (Tuesday). As I was reading Mr. Brainerds Journal, he appear’d at my gate, his brother Israel and Mrs. Jerusha Edwards of Northampton with him — ‘twas just at Eve. I rejoic’d much to see him yet alive. They all lodg’d here. Mr. Beriah Rice brought us Some Metheglin.
A beverage made of fermented honey and water that was sometimes called mead.
