August 26, 1767

1767 August 26 (Wednesday).  I was but poorly both yesterday and to Day.  Am put in mind how frail I am.  The Lord grant me His Special Grace!  Mr. Roger Bruce here from Brookfield.  Acquaints me with the sad divided state of my son Forbes’s Parish.  At least 10 male members absent from the last Communion.  Temple came in the middle of the Forenoon from his Brother Thomas’s: and he goes to work again.  Old Mrs. Kelly, Mrs. Dolly Rice, Mrs. Johnson, Mrs. Fessenden (whose relation I alter and write over), Misses Hephzibah Maynard, Betsy, Nanny and Suse Brigham and Miss Polly Baker, here, and drink Tea (except for Mrs. Johnson).  Temple lodges here still.
