January 13, 1748

1748 January 13 (Wednesday).  In Returning today, dined at Mr. Morse’s and (though it snowed) we tarried and attended his Lecture.  I preached on John 17.4.  N.B. Colonel Nahum Ward,[1] Mr. Cushing, and Mr. Maccarty[2] with us.  Captain Maynard and I called at Mr. Cushing’s and at evening returned home, through God’s mercy in Comfort and safety and found our Familys in peace.  D.G.
