January 14, 1772

1772 January 14 (Tuesday).  P.M. rode over to Hopkinton.  In my way there visit Mrs. Hardy and pray with her.  Visit also a Stranger who lies Sick at William Pierce’s junior.  His name is George Pinkerton, a sailor.  Prayed with him.  Went to see Mr. Fitch that I might be better acquainted with him.  He read one of his sermons  to me.  Lodged at Mr. Barretts.
