February 15, 1748

1748 February 15 (Monday).  Mr. Ebenezer Rice here in the morning with Mr. Cowell.  Mr. Cowell left us to go to Boston. N.B. The Precinct met to make answer to my Two last Papers sent in to them and to see whether they would build New meeting House within 30 Rods of the Burying place.  Affairs of such weight and Consequence (as I humbly apprehend) read[?] the direction and influence of Heaven which may God’s people obtain! Molly and Lucy to Mr. Martyns.
