1770 February 23 (Friday). Attended the Funeral of another of Mr. Seth Gashitts Children, about 3 years and 5 months old. The name was Betty. It dyed yesterday morning. I dined at Mr. James Bowmans. Deacon Cheney of Ashburnham here. He informs that my Daughter Cushing is better. He also acquaints us that there was yesterday a dreadful Riot at Boston. The Mob besett Mr. William Jacksons House: that a Gun was shot from the House and a Lad was killed. Upon which a Soldier rushed into the House and seized a Young man with the Gun in his Hand. My Kinsman Elias was wont to live there: but can’t yet know whether it was he or no. Expected Breck from Boston last night, and fear whether he is well, Since he delays his Coming.
