August 22, 1759

1759 August 22 (Wednesday).  In conformity to the Summons Yesterday I rode to Worcester — but I might e’en as well stay at home — for the Cause did not come on.  I dined at Mr. Maccartys.  A great Number of Ministers in the Town — Messrs. Martyn, Stone, and Harrington were summoned — Messrs. Hall, Wellman, Hill, Davis, Kendall etc.  N.B. I rode up in Mr. Forb.’s Chair and on the Baldwin Horse which I reposed in Mr. Maccartys Care and lodged there (having attended the Court in the afternoon).
