August 29, 1759

1759 August 29 (Wednesday).  Dr. Gott rode with me to Sturbridge, where I went to see Mr. Rice,[1] who is sick.  I found him very low indeed.  We dined there — And by reason of their great Importunity I tarryed all Night.  N.B. Dr. Upham came to see him — and Dr. Gott had his Company to Brookfield.  N.B. Among the Company that came in to See Mr. Rice, came Lieut. Fisk, who was a principal Separate.  With him I had some Discourse concerning Ruling Elders etc.
