May 30, 1745

1745 May 30 (Thursday).  Thomas had gone to his Fathers and not being well return’d late this Morning — yet had struck no stroke at Weeding till to Day.  I rode again to Mr. Nathan Balls to see his son Ebenezer who grows worse.  I visited Mr. Livermores[1] Family, one of whose Daughters of about 11 years of age has been much troubled with Fitts.  N.B. I took some pains, as I had Opportunity to Enquire into the Reasons of the absence of Such a Number of the Northside Members from the last Communion.  Mr. Livermore prevented by his Daughters Fitts.  Mrs. Hannah Ball and divers others disquieted in their minds with their Differences.  Mr. Jacob Rice Said he could not leave his House, it being the place where the North Assembly meets — but there appeared to me no strength nor Validity in his Excuse.
