1736 April 6 (Tuesday). Lieutenant and I went to Boston. Many <word crossed out> in the Town have the Sickness, but through the Mercy of God it is not So Mortal there as it was and Still is at the Eastward, yet some that have dyed in this Town have been far more putrifyed and Corrupted than they were there awhile agoe. Sister Lydia at Brother Samuels. Eve at Mr. Mountforts.
