August 11, 1758

1758 August 11 (Friday).  I took leave, commending them all, and particularly the feeble tender Infant to a Gracious, almighty God and savior.  Dined at Mr. Eatons.  Called at Mr. Roberts and Maccartys — and Cushings — got home in safety.  And my Wife’s Breast healing.  D.G.  But my little Children exercised with the terrible Cough.  N.B. Mr. Joseph Dorr junior who was to have preached for me last Lords Day Sent a Letter that he had a Boil so situated that he could not come.  My Wife sent to Deacon Tainter to provide somebody: he went to Mr. Asaph Rice, who went to Mr. Martyn and he to Mr. Stone who came and preached here.
