1759 April 17 (Tuesday). Billy leaves us to go into the Service. Alexander goes with him to help him on his way, as far as Shrewsbury. N.B. I gave him six Dollars; and he gave me a province Note of 8£ L.M. or 60£ Old Tenor. My Wife has her Fitts of Ague and Fever — but I hope She is not so bad as heretofore. Samme has the Fever and Ague. Visit Mr. Nurse and prayed with him. Cousen Maynard here — N.B. my ride to Mr. Jonathan Fay for money. Mr. Woodward and his wife ride to Sutton — but they did not alight — for I was not at home — but met them near Capt. Woods.
