1770 February 1 (Thursday).  Capt. Jonathan Fay here to acquaint me with the Distresses of his Wife, and that the Infant born is dead.  They desire I would be with them tomorrow at the burying of it.  Sermonizing.  I visited Mrs. Hawes.  She is weak and low.  Prayed and gave Thanks to God.  Mr. Morse from Boston says, there the Report is, that the Acts are repealed.  Ruth and Sophy go to Dr. Hawes’s at Evening and tarryed all night.
