March 20, 1756

1756 March 20 (Saturday).  When my Thoughts were deeply engaged in my preparations and I depended much on to Day for writing, I was called away to the North End of the Town, to a Funeral, viz. of Charles M’Allister — in his 32d Year and was the first Child that I ever Baptized: old Mr. Increase Ward being the first Person.  I dined at Mr. Martyns, who is still drooping and most of his Family indisposed.  In returning I called at Mr. Masons, at his Desire, and gave a Testimony concerning Mr. David Maynard junior to be carryed to Rev. Henchman of Lyn, carefully inserted that it Should not be understood as Passing my Word for him etc.
