1752 November 14 (Tuesday). Early in the Morning Mr. Forbush and his Wife, with the Company who came to wait on them together with a Number from us, My Son Ebenezer and his Wife, Thomas and Lucy — Messrs. Daniel and Jonathan Forbush and their Wives, took leave of us for Brookfield, designing to dine at Sergeants at Leicester: the weather Fair, and Everyone, through Mercy, in Health. Lucy is gone with her sister to tarry with her this Winter. May God be gracious to them, and give them a prosperous Journey by the Will of God! and may their Joys be never diminish’d! I visited Mrs. Pierce and her Children that are sick. P.M. Antoine Cussac, a Deserter from the French Forces at Chignecto, or from Crown Point, here. At Eve I marry’d Mr. Francis Harrington and Mrs. Deborah Brigham, at her Brother Jonas’s, and I supp’d there.
