February 11, 1749

1749 February 11 (Saturday).  Disappointed of Changing tomorrow with Mr. Martyn.  I did what I could to prepare my Self.  But at about 11 at night came Mr. Ebenezer Johnson from Southborough requesting me to change tomorrow with Mr. Minot[1] of Concord, who would preach at Acton and Mr. Swift[2] for Mr. Smith.  Mr. Smith would come to supply my place whilst I should go to Southborough.  Accordingly

[1]Timothy Minot (Harvard 1718), a Concord schoolmaster who preached occasionally.  Sibley, VI, 257-258.  See Shattuck, Concord, p. 164.

[2]The Reverend John Swift, Jr., of Acton.
