November 4, 1756

1756 November 4 (Thursday).  I hear that to Day there is a Fast at Hopkinton and that I am sent to, but no Message has reached me.  I attended the Funeral of Deacon Forbs. Daughter Joanna.  The Deacon Seems to be more comfortable both in Mind and Body — thinks he knows in whom he has believed etc.  Sister Forb. low yet: and the Youngest Child ill.  But Rufus Putnam is recovering.  My Daughter in Law here, and is very earnest to know what I will do for her Husband.  She lodges here.
