1769 October 17 (Tuesday). Mr. Whitney of Northborough came in when I was getting ready to go to Ministers Meeting at Hopkinton. He knew not of it, and was Preparing to go to Lunenburg. I rode to Hopkinton and dined there, but no other Minister came. P.M. Mr. Barrett Sent an Express to Mr. Stone, but he was gone to Hardwick. Probably the unusual cold, Windy, rough Weather might hinder the aged and infirm, but what may be the reason of the Delinquency of Others, I can’t conjecture.
