1754 February 20 (Wednesday). Lieutenant Forbush brought me his Horse on which I rode to old Mr. Nathaniel Hudsons Funeral. He was in his 85th Year according to his Children’s Reckoning. I went from the House of Mourning to visit old Mrs. Garfield who lies very bad of the Pleuretick Fever which has been of late very Mortal in Neighbouring Towns. Mr. Grove and Mr. Joseph Woods din’d with me, and Mr. John Brighams wife here all the afternoon.
