April 17, 1781

1781 April 17 (Tuesday).  I rode down to East-Sudbury to Ministers Meeting at Mr. Bridge’s (Mr. Stone waiting for me at Mr. Joseph Arnolds, at Marlborough, and my Granddaughter, Suse was with me).  Mr. Whitney, Mr. Biglow, and Mr. Newell, were there.  Mr. Puffer, a Preacher at Bolton, was there likewise.  Mr. Stone prayed.  There was no Concio by reason of Mr. Newels request that the Association would hear a Case of Difficulty in Stow relative to a Charles Whitney.  It was heard and Mr. Newell was advised — Mr. P. Whitney prayed, and we appointed the next Meeting to be at his House.  I had expected my son William or his son to have come for Suse, and have carryed her to Concord, but neither of them came, so that we both of us tarryed at Mr. Bridges through the Night — I lodged with Mr. Stone.
