February 14, 1749

1749 February 14 (Tuesday).  I rode up to Mr. Cushings, who was sent to also by the Reverend Mr. Davis and the Church and people under his Care, to assist in the Services of the intended Fast at Holden, on account of the Throat Distemper lately among them.  We had a Cold Ride — called at Mr. Phinehas Haywoods — found ‘em all well at Mr. Davis’s, though their Neighbours were very distress’d.  An exceeding Cold Night.
