June 13, 1759

1759 June 13 (Wednesday).  I rode to Southborough.  Dined at Mr. Stones.  Sundry of his Children have the Meazles, viz. Miss Mary, Joanna, Thomas and Peter.  I preached the Lecture on Eph. 1.7, former part, to page [blank].  In returning called at the Widow Bents and paid her my Note (the principal), which I gave her on my son Ebenezers Account with Mr. Ebenezer Rice.  N.B. she could not find the Note; so she gave me a Receipt, viz. of 3£ old Tenor.  N.B. Deacon Tainter ploughed in my Island Field, and Mr. Ithamar Bellows and son, Seth Woods, James Bellows, Ebenezer Chamberlin junior, [blank] Belknap, and [blank] Woods came and hoed the most of that piece.  For which I desire to thank God who inclines them thereto — and may God Bless Each of them.
