1767 November 17 (Tuesday).  Capt. Maynard came to call me to Mr. Beetons to see his little William but though I hastened, he dyed before I got there.  The House in great Mourning.  I prayed with them.  Capt. invited me to breakfast there.  I complyed — and thence to Mr. Parkers and prayed with them.  Visited Mr. Edmund Brighams Child which is supposed to have the Distemper.  Dined, after I had prayed, there.  Thence went to Ensign Snows — to Beemans — William Woods — a Girl sick at this last place.  N.B. Mr. Frost had sowed some Rye and John and Nathan Maynard junior plowed it in, at the Island.  John Waits on his Mother to Mr. Parkers to watch there.
