October 21, 1748

1748 October 21 (Friday).  The Heirs of Mother Champney together and we made Computations among ourselves and agreed.  Sister Lydia took administrations (not in form of Law) and gave us Security.  I din’d at Brother Barretts.[1]  After I had drawn the writings I smok’d a pipe with Judge Danforth[2] for his approbation.  Past 3 p.m. I undertook my Journey.  Got to Mr. Bridge’s[3] at Framingham and lodg’d there.

[1]Parkman’s brother-in-law, John Barrett.

[2]Samuel Danforth of Cambridge.

[3]The Reverend Mr. Matthew Bridge.
