April 9, 1772

1772 April 9 (Thursday).  This, though it proves So very Stormy Day and most difficult Travelling, is the Time appointed for the Burial of Capt. Joseph Mellen at Hopkinton and when probably Mrs. Martyn is on the Road from Brookfield to See her son John before he dyes.  The Lord be with all the Distressed!  Mr. Bradshaw is much indisposed.
