December 29, 1768

1768 December 29 (Thursday).  Letters from Rochester of the 21, by way of Grafton, certifying of their Happiness: especially Suse’s Health.  Agreeable to an Invitation Mr. John Wood made,  My Wife and I rode up there, and after Spending the Evening and handsomely Supping with them we returned well pleased with the Visit we had made, except that I did not go in to t’other House to see old Mrs. Woods, who lodges at the Deacons and has done so for some Time: and Should be heartily glad that no more of Religious Conversation can be introduced into our Discourse: that God may be glorifyed and the Company more profited than by our Common Methods of entertaining one another.
