July 9, 1768

1768 July 9 (Saturday).  Suse informs me that Mr. Nathan Ball of Northborough dyed suddenly the night before last.  May God sanctifie this to us!  Sarah returned from Brookfield, and Mr. Cushing comes with her to preach for me.  N.B. He has received a Call from Ashburnham.  Mr. Jacob Rice, not knowing of Mr. Cushings coming, came also to preach for me.  They both lodge here.  Enoch goes home at Eve, as usual.  Mr. Moore’s Horse has got out of the Pasture and is gone.  He has Mr. Whipple’s to go to Roxbury.
