1773 September 23 (Thursday). We returned to Worcester. Was at Mr. Maccartys. Dined at Mr. Bridge’s, with young Mr. Hutchinson, the school Master. P.M. at Mr. [Pains?] where was Coll. Worthington, who informs me Mr. Breck is just upon his marriage with Mrs. Dor of Hartford. I was at Mr. Putnams, Dr. Willards, at Judge Chandlers. The Cause between Ensign Fay and Master Smith was tryed. Elias was not Sworn. I attended part of the Time. After Court at Eve retired to Mr. Maccartys — had a faint turn, while I was there, and at the Smelling of the Supper — but through divine Favour recovered, and at length Eat of the Food prepared. May it be a memento to me! Lodged at the Same Place.
