August 9, 1758

1758 August 9 (Wednesday).  Mr. Forbush not being come, Dr. Gott and I, and my Son Ebenezer with us, rode up the Road to meet him; but saw nothing of him — yet heard still of him, that he was coming.  I dined at Deacon Cutlers.  Went to Nicols’s — where I was long detained by the heavy Rains.  Returned at night very Wet — to my son Baldwins, where I lodged.  N.B. Dr. Munro gave further account of Mr. Forb.
