April 17, 1752

1752 April 17 (Friday).  Thomas and Molly return’d from Cambridge.  Thomas had drop’d his great Coat from his Horse in Roxbury — and did not find it.  Mr. Winchester from Boston informs that many die of the Small Pox there, and Some Number of those who were inoculated: particularly we hear that Mr. Robert Breck being inoculated, is dead.
