November 7, 1758

1758 November 7 (Tuesday).  It rained — yet I rode to Sutton.  Deacon Tainter with me.  Deacon Bond could not go with us.  Mr. Smith and Deacon Woods came to us at Mr. Hutchinsons where we all dined.  In Sutton we met at Mr. Samuel Bucks junior.  13 Churches.  Mr. Welds and Mr. Bean’s instead of Mr. Porter of Bridgwater and Mr. Cook of Cambridge: but the Church of Sturbridge came not at all.  We formed into a Council: adjourned to the Meeting House — Mr. Dorr the moderator prayed.  And the Night coming on and we being Wet and Cold, adjourned to tomorrow morning 9 o’Clock.  Mr. Cushing and I lodged at Mr. Simon Tainters.
