December 10, 1750

1750 December 10 (Monday).  At Dr. Smiths — Mr. Heminway better.  I return’d home.  My wife informs me that Mr. Cushing rode away from the Meeting House Yesterday in order to go to Marlborough, to her great Surprize, at the Funeral of a base-born Child, at Mr. Francis Whipples.  The Mother is from Boston: I ask’d her what her name was, but she desir’d to conceal it.  At Eve Lieutenant Tainter here.
