March 23, 1767

1767 March 23 (Monday).  My Wife rides with me to visit Miss Belknap who is Sick and I prayed there.  We called at Mr. Bradish’s.  N.B. His Father in Law Mr. Moreton, ill there.  Called at Mr. Seth Woods’s and at Mr. Bellows and Ebenezer Chamb.  But we dined at old Mr. Chamberlins.  N.B. Mr. Bellows, when we were taking Leave, broke out bitterly, thus, “If you would not forbid our going to hear that precious Minister” — meaning Mr. Cleaveland.  I Answered that if he was ever so worthy in preaching yet if he walked disorderly, we could not encourage the going to hear him.
