December 8, 1767

1767 December 8 (Tuesday).  I visited Ann Maynard (Mr. Davids Daughter, in her 20th) sick of the Throat Distemper.  Dined there.  Prayed with them, as their Daughter was so bad as to be confined to her Bed, and has had strong Fever.  From thence I went to Mr. Solomon Bakers and prayed at the Funeral of his other little Daughter — a sore Breach!  After the burying Lt. J. Martyn here.  He presents me with an Hebrew Pamphlet.  Rev. Mr. Morse of Shrewsbury here.  Reckon with him for his Boarding and Doctering Suse.  Says 3 Dollars will suffice.  He also advises me to call a Council, whether the Church will or no — there being so great Clamour abroad, as he thinks necessitates it.
