June 27, 1770

1770 June 27 (Wednesday).  Ebenezer to Cambridge.  Carrys Letters from me to Mr. John Marrett, and Mr. Antipas Steward, requesting Assistance in Preaching next Sabbath.  Mr. Gilmore setts out for Cumberland.  Mr. Edwards Whipple calls me to Visit a Child of Mr. Amasa Maynard who is bad with the Throat Distemper.  As soon as I had dined I went — but the Child was dead.  She expired a little after 10 a.m. (while Mr. Whipple was with me).  It was their Eldest, Loretta, nigh 8 Years old.
