November 18, 1767

1767 November 18 (Wednesday).  Am very much taken up with visiting the Sick, and attending on the Dead: for this Day I attend Buryal of little William Beeton and at Eve carry my Daughter Sarah to watch at Mr. Parkers — but when we arrived there, Pierpont had expired.  Prayed with them and we both returned.  The Lord extend His Pity to that distressed House!  My Son Baldwin came, in his Journey to Boston.  N.B. Lt. Baker brings up a Load of my Wood, from my swamp.
