October 10, 1768

1768 October 10 (Monday).  Took Mr. Forbes’ Mare and a Chaise which he provided, leaving my Mare for him — and his Wife rode with me to Westborough.  Called at Mr. Eaton’s.  Dined at Mr. Sergeants (Gratis) — at Mr. Maccartys — he perswades me to call and see the poor Condemned Criminal, Arthur, of but 18 years.  Conversed and prayed with him.  Stopped and refreshed at Mr. Sumners — who tells me that Mr. Whitney preached for me yesterday.  Arrived here before Dark in safety.  D.G.
