March 9, 1770

1770 March 9 (Friday).  Squire Whipple here to desire me to go and See his Grandson Francis, who is very ill of the Throat Distemper.  I went, Spoke with the Child — prayed — returned a.m.  P.M. rode to See old Mr. Dunlop who Seems somewhat easier and freer — Sits up and smokes his pipe.  Says he is doing all he can (for his Salvation).  Prayed with him.  Attend the Funeral of a fourth of Mr. Gashitts Children.
