August 26, 1751

1751 August 26 (Monday).  Ebenezer Carted over my principall Book Presses, and several Boxes more.  And it seems now like something of Remove.  I was at Morning Prayer with my children at my former Dwelling.  After Exercises I gave them Exhortation and Solemn Charge to keep the Way of the Lord.  May they have Grace to attend to it and observe it!  Before we parted from home, came Mr. Martyn and his Wife, accompany’d by Mr. Michael Dennis, Bookseller in Boston.  Who all went with me to the New House.  Where came also to visit us Mr. Miller and Mrs. Harrington each with a Cheese.  Thomas to the Island a. and p.m.  Ebenezer only latter part of P.M.  Lieutenant Wood of Hopkinton here.
