April 20, 1757

1757 April 20 (Wednesday).  Deacon, Amon and Mrs. Mary.  My wife very ill last Night — but was better when she got up.  Was able to finish a New Plad Gown for me.  Capt. Baldwin having received no Letter from me concerning the Alteration of the Time of his Marriage from the 21st Day as was proposed, by reason of the publick Fast, to the 28th (but yet I Sent one by Mr. Abner Rice of Brookfield) came here this Evening, and lodged here.  N.B. his horse was Sent to Esquire Bakers to be kept there.
