Mrs. Whitmore (Mrs. Springs mother) made us a Visit. Mr. Joshua Johnson of Bolton was here with another Message from Mr. Goss praying that I would not fail to go to Worcester tomorrow, inasmuch as the Lawyers of the Opposite Party would oblige him to prove his Ordination, the Churches Choice and his Acceptance; and ‘tis Said I was Clerk or Scribe at that time.
