    Dudley Woodbridge (1705-1790), a physician from Groton and Stonington, Connecticut, kept this journal from 1 October to 10 October 1728 while traveling with Ebenezer Hinsdell (Hinsdale) from Cambridge to Sunderland, Massachusetts.  Within this 5-page journal Woodbridge described and sketched various meeting and dwelling houses in Watertown and Deerfield, Massachusetts; ministers and lay people visited; the landscape; constellations; and objects of note, such as a Native American bier.
