January 8, 1760

1760 January 8 (Tuesday).  Deacon Tainter brings me an Horse to wait on me to Lt. Holloways Funeral.  We dine at Mr. Martyns — who tells me he has received a Letter from Sutton, North precinct, to desire Assistance in Council.  At the House of Mourning a great Concourse.  Mr. Martyn prayed.  The deceased was for some time, doubtless the principal [Stud?] in that Society.  May the Death be so sanctifyed to me that I may be truely profited by it!  At Eve Capt. Rolf visits me.  Marryed Seth Gashitt to Anna Warrin.  Omitted that Jonas Child being returned from Still-Water, where he was in the Batteau Bus’ness with Thomas, came to see me a.m.
