January 9, 1777

1777 January 9 (Thursday).  None of my Children from New Braintry, etc. are come though Sent to.  Messrs. Hall, Stone, and Crosby come a.m.  They, with my Daughters accompany Breck (who is better) to Col. Brighams.  I went with them.  Mr. Whitney of Northborough there ready.  We dined sumptuously.  P.M. Mr. Whitney prayed and administered the marriage Covenant to Breck and Suse.  I prayed after.  My son Alexander Came from Leicester and attended the Solemnity.  In closing the solemnity the Bridegroom, Bride, Mr. Whitney, the young Gentlemen, Winslow Brigham, Edward (son of Captain Jonas), two or three young women came to my House, where we supped.  Mr. Whitney returned home.  And part of the Company did so.  Alexander, Messrs.
