1756 February 23 (Monday). Messrs. Cushing and Martyn dined here. The former requests me to assist at a Fast in Shrewsbury next Thursday appointed by the Church on Account of Mr. Samuel Wheelock who remains in a distracted Condition. Mr. Martyn came with a View to going to Mendon with Mr. Stone, to consult Mr. Dor upon Woodstock affairs. Both of them return home unsuccessful.
Mr. Cushing, because I am going to Boston (by leave and help of God), Mr. Martyn, because Mr. Stone does not come, but sends to me a Letter of the Sickness and Mortality among them in Southborough; which prevents his going; or meeting Mr. Martyn here. P.M. I visited at Mr. Biglows and at Mr. Jonah Warrins. High Winds in the night.
