1759 April 3 (Tuesday). My Wife no better. Send for the Doctor but in vain. Delivered a 33£ (old Tenor) piece of Gold and another of 18 O.T. to Mr. Daniel Forb. to carry, the first to Col. Brigham, the other for Capt. Ezra Taylor of Southborough. A Comet was Seen this Morning. P.M. attended the Funeral of Mrs. Dorothy Maynard, wife of Mr. Reuben Maynard Aged about 35 or 36. A very sorrowful instance of human Frailty! Her first Fit was Sudden, on Thursday last — after which she never recovered. May God Sanctifie this awfull stroke. My Wife still worse.
