July 3, 1767

1767 July 3 (Friday).  Am thoughtful what Method to take respecting my Journey to Ashby; for not hearing from Lydia I hardly know how to venture to go for my wife, and yet if I dont go now, I can’t go afterwards, to be with them on a Sabbath; nor know I how to go away and leave our own Assembly destitute.  But in the midst of these Thoughts, I am eased as to the Latter; Mr. James Parker sends me a Line that he is in Town, and can serve me next sabbath.  I immediately get ready and ride as far as Mr. Morse’s at Shrewsbury, and lodge there.  For Suse is still there.
