May 15, 1751

1751 May 15 (Wednesday).  My wife and I, together with my two sons Ebenezer and Thomas attended the Marriage of Mr. Abraham Batchellor to Mrs. Sally Newton, only Daughter of the late Mr. Abner Newton; which was solemniz’d at the Widow Newtons p.m.  N.B. My Daughter Lucy was invited also, (and not Molly) — Molly rode over to Mr. Martyns, agreeable to Appointment Some Time ago, and Lucy tarried at home with the children.  I can’t but remark what a changing world we live in.  What an House of Sorrows that was for a great while, which is now of so high Joy.
