1760 March 22 (Saturday). A.M. Capt. Wood sent for me to go up and See him; he having unhappily broke his Leg. He fell off from a Load of Wood, and was cast down under the Cart Wheel which went over his Leg; and he was wonderfully preserved from its going over his Body. I went up to See him — but returned home to Dinner. But (agreeable to my Engagement to him) when Mrs. Parker came, to Set the Bones, I went back to him again. We prayed previous to the Operation. Dr. Crosby there. It was late in the afternoon before I could leave him. N.B. Smoke rises in the East, and Some people fear there is Still destructive Fires in Boston.
