1770 February 5 (Monday).  Alexander Oliver leaves us to go to Charlestown, and Boston if the Ferry be passable.  Mr. Seth Woods carrys away Ruth Bellows, to his Wife.  I visit and pray with Dr. Haws’s Wife, who is still very low.  P.M. Four young men came to chop up my Wood at the Door, viz. John Fay, Jonathan Forbes, Nathan Fay and Eli Harrington.  Mr. Moses Thompson and his sister Adams, who have come over to see their sister Hawes, Mr. Silas Hill and his wife, and Master Taylor, were here to see us.
