July 21, 1747

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.[1]

[1]A beverage made of fermented honey and water that was sometimes called mead.
