February 26, 1749

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.
