1771 February 19 (Tuesday). I rode in my Sleigh to see Mrs. Gale, who is very low; Scarce able to Speak. Prayed by her. Wrote to my Brother William and Sent it by Mr. James Knap of Uxbridge. In returning home called to see Mr. Andrews who is lame in his shoulder. Was treated very generously. At nine o’clock Dr. Hawes brought home my wife and Daughter Hannah. They came round by the way of Marlborough and made it so late by Calling at many places. N.B. My grandson Elias went to Mr. James Goddards and brought my two year old steer home.
