1773 October 21 (Thursday). Capt. Peter Coffin of Cape Ann, and his Son in law Mr. Nathaniel Smith going up to Brookfield, came, and dined here. It is supposed that his son Peter (who has been sick) is so recovered as to be gone up to be marryed. May a gracious God extend His Favour and Smiles, and may my grand Daughter, as well as the Bridegroom, be espoused to Jesus Christ! Mr. Harrington, Chamberlin and Champney dined here. At Eve came Messrs. Hezekiah Taylor, Benjamin Guild, and Amariah Frost, made me a Visit and lodged here.
