August 15, 1758

1758 August 15 (Tuesday).  It was my Design to go to Marlborough to Day but the Rain prevents; and prevents my having any Thing done in my Meadows.  The Waters are so very deep.  A most Melancholly Time!  A Sore Token of divine Displeasure!  May we be properly humbled before God!  A number of Neighbours here to hear Mr. Forb.’s Letter which he wrote to Rev. Eaton (of which I have a Copy) presently after the [Retreat.?] the French at Ticonderoga.  And Mr. David Maynard Collector delivered me some money.
