May 21, 1773

1773 May 21 (Friday).  Hear that poor Mr. Samuel Stacy dyed Yesterday — and unhappy [Man?] in a very despairing Frame: but as he was under hypocondriack Affections, and he was Sometimes, at least partly, delirious, a Judgment cannot be made concerning him.  My Kinsman Bradshaw from Western and dined here.  He is journeying to Brookfield.  P.M. Cousen Maynard came with her sister Miss Betty Gott, waited on by Mr. Daniel Gilbert of Brookfield.  N.B. This afternoon was a session of the Meeting House Committee, who Enquire into the Conduct of Henry Marble, who stole some of their Rum.  I hear he was brought to Confession and Humiliation.
