April 9, 1756

1756 April 9 (Friday).  Mr. Manning leaves us to go to Brookfield.  Mr. Moses Nurse breaks up a Yard at the East End of my House.  P.M. Mrs. Judith Bellows here; She is somewhat more moderate and mollifyed and desires we would not immediately proceed further against her in the Church.  Yet I fear her mind in the main is not altered.  God be mercifull to her and shew her her Error!  And grant us Grace to conduct in a suitable manner in the Discharge of our Duty towards her!  At Eve Mr. Zebulun Rice acquaints me that Ensign Harrington and Others are laying a scheme to come and cross my New Field.
