1756 September 14 (Tuesday). A great Frost last Night. A.M. at the Funeral of Mr. Eliphalet Adams’s Child; P.M. at the Burying of Lt. Maynards little Negro Boy. At Each House another Child is taken with the Distemper, and we have great reason to fear its Spreading. It is very Mortal in Holden, Chauxit etc. May the Lord fit and prepare us for His sovereign Pleasure!
