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.
