August 5, 1767

1767 August 5 (Wednesday).  Pursue my Journey — to Roxbury and dine at Mr. Adams’s — to Boston.  My dear Brother Samuel is confined to his Chamber and mostly to his Bed — blistered and polticed — has a Nervous Fever and is (we conceive) delirious — at least in some Measure so.  Shews great Distress, of Mind and Body.  I lodged, and Mr. Loyd took Care of my Horse.
