1773 July 9 (Friday). Rose very early. Was mounted about Sunrise (fearing the Heat of the Day) and rode to Mr. Cushings for Breakfast, by 7 o’Clock. Mr. Hubbard, my worthy Class-Mate, lay at Mrs. Williams’s very ill. I would fain have gone in, but all advised the Contrary, as he was too low to converse. I therefore desisted. Rested at Mr. Bridge’s at Framingham. Got to Southborough by noon. Dined at Mr. Stones and Stayed till after three. The Heat great — got home with Difficulty. Was much worried. Mrs. Chamberlain here to talk with me. Dr. Hawes and Wife here, but I was not well able to wait on them. Was forced to lie down. N.B. My Daughter Baldwin came Yesterday with Mr. Bradshaw, who returns today to Brookfield.
