1749 February 26 (Sunday). Oblig’d to take some old preparations for both a. and p.m. What I had endeavour’s to prepare not being ripened. I therefore repeated sermon from Ps. 78.11 on Occasion of the Throat Distemper being among us again at Mr. Hows — Betty How dead and 2 more Children sick there. Mr. Upham, Mr. Lawrence and Mr. Chaddock din’d here. Mr. Chaddock brought his son Thomas to live here with me.
