December 7, 1773

1773 December 7 (Tuesday).  Wrote to Rev. Rawson at Hadlyme, via Boston, to the Care of Mr. Gamaliel Rogers.  N.B. have sent a Letter to Mr. Adams of Roxbury to certifie me about Dr. Locke’s Case.  Wrote it in Latin.  P.M. Preached at Deacon Bonds on Ps. 119.126 to p. 18.  May divine Blessing be added!  My Daughter Hannah went with me.  An handsome entertainment followed.  At Eve came Mr. John Messenger of Wrentham and with him Capt. Samuel Cowell.  Mr. Wheelock conducted them here.  They lodged with us.  They confirm the Sad Story of Dr. Locke.
