1754 August 6 (Tuesday). My Kinswoman etc. pursue their Journey. The Lord conduct and defend her! Being nigh out of Cyder I rode to Mr. Harringtons for supply. Thomas and Billy mow and rake a little at the Newton Meadow: and Neighbour Moses Nurse brings up a Load of Hay from thence. Mrs. Prentice, I hear, at Grafton, and that her Exhortings have Success.
Mrs. Solomon Prentice was one of that fanatic band of “immortals” in the vicinity. [Additional note: See Ross W. Beales, Jr, “The Ecstasy of Sarah Prentice: Death, Re-Birth, and the Great Awakening in Grafton, Massachusetts” Historical Journal of Massachusetts 26:2 (1997): 101-23.]
