September 30, 1757

1757 September 30 (Friday).  Old Mr. Maynard Sends for me, thinking he is near his End.  I went, but did not find as I feared.  He was able to Converse.  I dealt freely with him — and prayed with him.  Went to Lt. Maynards upon the unavoidably necessary Affair of Disposing of my Old Place.  Borrowed an Horse there.  I rode over to see Mr. Jacob Rice who lies Sick of a Fever — he and his Wife being still of our Church.  Returned to Lt. Maynards at about 2 p.m.  Eat there.  Bought 200 of Boards of him which Mr. Gashit brought home.  My Wife in great smart her Leg growing Worse.  My mind much exercised for my son Ebenezer.  Mr. Batherick and Noah How here — Mr. Gashitt.  They all eat here.  Alexander thrashes.
