February 12, 1739

1739 February 12 (Monday).  Sent Ebenezer to Marlborough to the Doctors and to Mr. Butlers, with the side saddle but he was removed to Rutland.  Captain Warrins young Child bury’d.  I went down in the Snow o’Foot, and the snow blowing into the Path made it very heavy and tiresome.  N.B. Sent to Mr. Williams a Letter touching the Harvard Affair and to Brother Samuel Breck at College and to Brother Samuel Parkman at Boston all by Samuel Baker.[1]  My Wife remains in much the Same State, except the very great Extremeity of Pain which is mitigated by her Anodyne.

[1]Son of Edward Baker of Westborough.
