July 16, 1750

1750 July 16 (Monday).  Forbush[1] begins to keep School at Mr. Eliezer Rice’s, and lodges here.  Catechiz’d at Mr. Joslins.  Carry’d my Wife with me and visited all that Neighbourhood except old Mr. Garfield; dining at Mr. Chamberlins.  We were also well entertain’d at Mr. Joslins after the Exercise.  May God add his Blessing to my weak Endeavours to promote His Kingdom and enable me rightly to improve the Benefits which I receive from his people!
