1775 April 12 (Wednesday). This Day was designed to be Lecture Day at Southborough and Mr. Fitch to preach to the Minute Men. Our Minute Men were invited, and Mr. Barnabas Newton and Joseph Harrington joining together propose to give them an early Dinner. To which Entertainment Mr. Newton had asked me: But it proved a stormy Day, both Snow and Rain, inasmuch that Mr. Bond and Mr. Wheelock came from Mr. Newtons to me, and Capt. Edmund Brigham likewise, to consult and conclude concerning the putting it by for to Day, and renewing the Appointment to be at some other time. Received a large and pertinent Letter on the Times, from Mr. Quincy.
