1765 July 30 (Tuesday). I payd Ensign Rice 4 Dollars for his Hay. Mr. Fessenden is returned from Cape Ann. I saw him at Capt. Maynards. He said he would come here, but he went to Mr. Marytns. At Eve Jonathan Cook came to me with a Sorrowful Message from Capt. Maynard that his youngest Child was drowned and dead and prayed me to go over. I went hastily. Found the Child laid out as a Corps. It was little Robert-Breck Maynard in his 16th Month — fell into a Kittle of Wort (not hot) about 4 o’Clock p.m., no one in the room; Hope, the Negro Girl, who had the Care of him, was gone to get Apples: when She came back, She pulled him out — but he expired. May God Sanctifie His holy Hand! I prayed, Counselled them all; supped and then returned.
