1769 April 7 (Friday). The Doctor dresses it again. Was at Deacon Wood’s. Mr. Whitney and Wife, Child, sister Allice, together with Mrs. Martyn make us a Visit — dine, drink Tea. Sorrowful news from Shrewsbury of Miss Bridget Cushings being very ill, her Case desperate and has Sent several Times for my Daughter Sarah to go to See her. John goes up with her; and leaving her there, he returns.
