April 9, 1755

1755 April 9 (Wednesday).  I rode down to Mrs. Belknaps who lies Sick — found her in an Excellent Frame as to her Spiritual Frame, pray’d with her — Said what I possibly could to her Husband to induce him to Reflect on himself.  Din’d at Chamberlins.  N.B. their bitter Complaints of Mr. Jonathan Bellows’s.  At Eve Mr. Baldwin here — and lodg’d here.  My Mare was kept at the Squire’s.
