October 22, 1748

1748 October 22 (Saturday).  Mr. Bridge rode with me as far as Mr. David Bruce’s — talk’d with his wife (heretofore Hannah Pierce) being under the Frowns of the Southborough Church.  I din’d at Colonel Williams[1] at Marlborough.  P.M. found my family in Peace.  D.G.  Rebecca Gott[2] came to live here on the 20th instant.  Ebenezer finish’d making Cyder, in all 18 Barrells.

[1]Abraham Williams, Parkman’s brother-in-law.

[2]Daughter of Dr. Benjamin Gott of Marlborough.
