1759 June 29 (Friday). Visited at Mr. Eleazer Williams, his oldest Daughter ill and languishing, and 3 or 4 others sick of the Meazles, and prayed there. Visit Joseph Harrington who is sick of a Fever and prayed there. After dining at home attended the Burying of Mr. Eb. Chamberlins infant Child. N.B. Mr. Joslin uneasy that I don’t baptize Jenny Maynards Child on his account, he having taken it to bring it up; whereas the parents are rather to be laboured with and brought to their Duty, that it may be done upon their Account and not a strangers.
