1748 October 1 (Saturday). Cold Day. Mr. Breck and Ballantine proceeded for Boston. Dr. Gott din’d here. P.M. Mr. Edwards Whipple brought home my young Cattle which came from Nichewoag: and receiv’d a Letter from the Church of Rutland to go to Council there. My many avocations greatly perplex me. May the Lord graciously Commiserate all my state!
