March 4, 1752

1752 March 4 (Wednesday).  I rode to Mr. Stones; I went by the way of Deacon Matthias Rice’s,[1] who is confin’d by Illness; is doubtless delirious but Shews great Distress of Mind.  I pray’d with him.  It rain’d yet I proceeded to Southborough, din’d at Mr. Stones.  Preach’d his Lecture on Rom. 14.8.  I return’d (in the Rain) at Eve.  Call’d at Mr. Amsdens.  N.B. Exceeding hollow and miry Roads.
