March 15, 1770

1770 March 15 (Thursday).  Visit Mr. Thomas Whitney’s Child, sick of a Fever.  Mr. Gleasons little Josiah, of 5 Years old, dies of the Throat Distemper.  I dined at Rev. Whitney’s.  Mr. Morse and his Wife, and Mr. Sumner there.  Mr. Morse preached on 1 Cor. 11.29.  A very useful Exercise: which may God bless!  N.B. Mr. Morse and I, after Meeting, and Mr. Dummer being by, had some Discourse concerning the Difference which prevents their Harmony and Communion as Ministers etc.  Mr. Whitney has a very great stone for his Front Door.  In returning called to see Mrs. Martyn.  When I came home Mr. Eli Whitney here.  He tells me that there has been a Court held to Day at Squire Whipple’s.  E. Rice and Temple agree.  Also Widow Martha Warrin and Temple, who had defamed her, agree.
