1772 October 21 (Wednesday). Distressing Rains. Am reading Mr. Lorings Diary. Am deeply abased. O how worthless I am! How short I fall! Mr. Daniel Forbes here with a Message from Mr. Hutchinson to entreat me not to fail to attend at the Church meeting there. Mr. Forbes informs me Mrs. Fay (Ensigns Wife) had Fitts last night at Mr. Nurse’s: but she is got home to day.
