September 2, 1779

1779 September 2 (Thursday).  Kezia was going home to New Marlborough alone.  The Difficulty in finding the Road to Lancaster, engaged me to go with her so far.  I went.  We dined at Mrs. Wilder’s in Lancaster.  Thence I went with my Daughter to t’other Side the Meeting House, and set her in the Road to her Brother’s in Fitchbourg.  I turned into Mr. Sheriff Greenleaf’s, thence to Mr. Harrington’s — he not at home, and sat out for home but in Northborough was compelled to go into Deacon Paul Newton’s to raising Supper, and lodged there.
