February 27, 1749

1749 February 27 (Monday).  It being proprietors meeting at Marlborough to Day, I thought it best (as Solomon directs Prov. 25.9) to go over to Mr. Charles Rice’s to talk with him about the Land which Lieutenant Hezekiah Ward had taken up for me on the plain.  He shewed me his Deeds, but had not the Plott which was needed.  Sent by Mr. Ebenezer Rice for some Number of Things to Boston.  Call’d to visit Mr. Williams.[1]  My Mare Lame yet.  Stopp’d the Church to offer Mr. Lawrence[2] and Mrs. Oak’s[3] Desire to be dismiss’d to Bolton, and to quicken the Church again in contributing at Communion.

[1]Eleazer Williams.

[2]Both Mr. and Mrs. Benjamin Lawrence were dismissed to the Bolton church.

[3]Mrs. Nathaniel Oake.
