1751 May 28 (Tuesday).  Mr. Breck to Marlborough.  I undertook my Journey afterwards.  Called at Mr. Timothy Warrins to receive money of Lieutenant Tainter.  At Mr. Gale’s to get Horse Shooes mov’d etc.  N.B. One Pierce of Sutton who had been a Delegate at Northampton Council, travelled some Miles with me.  Mr. Breck and I call’d to see Mr. Warham Williams but his Spouse acquainted us how hurtful it was to him to see Company, So that we did not desire to disturb him.  At Saltmarsh’s we saw Mr. Roberts [sic?] Breck of Boston and his Wife with other Company who had rid out so far for their Diversion.  Heard that Captain Joseph White, Elias’s Father-in-Law, was dead: and my Cousen Cowells Son Peam dy’d suddenly last week; being taken sick on Thursday and dy’d on Friday.  About three years old.  I put up my Horse at my Kinsman Procters in Boston and lodg’d at my Brother Samuels.
