October 25, 1766

1766 October 25 (Saturday).  Sat out for Townshend, westwardly part.  Arrived at my Son Williams and dined with my Daughter in Law.  P.M. went to him at his Saw-Mill at Ashbournham.  N.B. Mr. James Colman with a Number of Hands, building a large Bridge over the River (my son tells me it is) Souhegan.  Return back to his House and lodge there.  N.B. I wrote a Letter in the Morning to Rev. Mr. Dix of Townshend to inform him of my purpose to preach, but that I would desist from it, if he prohibited it.  Committed it to the Care of Mr. Stearns, inn-holder to convey it with Speed — immediately.
