May 1, 1772

1772 May 1 (Friday).  This Morning came Mr. Bradshaw from Deacon Woods where he lodged last night, after his Journey from Brookfield.  Deacon being his Company; and they very late in the Night.  Rode to Capt. Maynards and dined — thence to the late Lt. Martyns, and then to Mr. Whitneys.  I attended the Funeral of the late Lt. John Martyn, who has departed from us in the 42d Year of his Age, and has left Six Children.  I was desired to walk among the Mourners.  N.B. Mr. Whitney prayed.  Mr. Smith of Marlborough and Mr. Sumner of Shrewsbury were there also.  The Lord teach us all, the mournful Widow, Mother, Brethren etc. to profit.  Returned at Eve.
