1761 March 12 (Thursday). About 1/4 after 2 this morning we were awaked by an Earthquake but blessed be God for his preserving Goodness and Mercy! Came home a.m. and found my Tabernacle in Peace and safety. Mr. John Hicks of Cambridge here and dined, in his return home. Mr. Hills here again at night about his Wife, who is in much Trouble.
