February 7, 1759

1759 February 7 (Wednesday).  Master Bowman goes to Cambridge.  Mr. Martyn and his Wife came to see us: and dined here.  They returned at Eve.  Mr. Belknap here.  In walking to Mr. Nurse’s together he asks me whether, upon supposition he be restored to Southborough Church, I were willing to admitt him here.  I told him I could not tell as yet what we Should do.  But I Supposed he might hardly be willing to leave them, if all things were made smooth there, since it was so much nigher to go there, and he always used to choose it.  At Mr. Nurse’s talked with Mr. Timothy Warrin about their great neglect in making up Accounts with me, he being precinct Treasurer.
