March 18, 1760

1760 March 18 (Tuesday).  Lt. Jesse Brigham comes to inform me of the Death of Capt. Samuel Wood, of the North side, and that he is to be buryed next Thursday (by divine Leave), And it is the widow that sends this Message to me.  I walked over to t’other House to acquaint Mr. Rice with my Agreement with Mr. Parker, and that he must come into the House in a fortnight.  I walked round, and came home by Capt. Rolfs, who is still confined by his Disorders, and now especially by a bad sore, bred a little below his right Knee.
