October 4, 1754

1754 October 4 (Friday).  In the latter part of the Night and Morning Some refreshing Showers, but clear’d off afterwards So that I rode over to Mr. Martyns and brought home my Wife.  No word pass’d about our Epistolary Contests.  At Evening came Mr. Benjamin Tainter with his Wife, his own Mother, and his Wife’s Father, Mother and Brother.  N.B. Thomas lodges at t’other House to my great Grief and Trouble, as there are Several young Women like to lodge there, and Mr. Foster is gone to Holiston to See his Father who we hear is Sick.
