April 16, 1750

1750 April 16 (Monday).  My Wife and I rode up to Mr. Winchesters to see their Daughter Prudence who is consuming away.  We din’t there.  In returning call’d at Mr. Benjamin Fays.  N.B. Mrs. Miles of Concord there in a very gloomy disconsolate Condition.  Catechiz’d at the Meeting House, 43 Children, males and Females.  My wife waited for me with the Chair, at Mr. Fays and at Deacon Newtons.  The Earth wears a pleasant Green again.  Blessed be God!
