October 24, 1754

1754 October 24 (Thursday).  Messrs. Eliot, Thayer and Young Barrett from Leicester — only call’d at the Door in their Way to Hopkinton.  P.M. Went down to see Mr. Jonathan Bellows and wife; but he was not himself at home.  I discours’d with his Wife according to her particular Case, and pray’d with her and Such as were in the House.  N.B. Dr. Chase[1] was with me and he visited at Mr. Ithamar Bellows’s their Daughter Elizabeth having the Rheumatism.  I talked freely with the Doctor concerning his own Conduct; and wish a Blessing!
