August 30, 1773

1773 August 30 (Monday).  Visit Benjamin Tainter junior who is grievously exercised with Fits.  His Case is very Sad.  May the Lord shew Pity!  Prayed there.  Dined with them also.  Mrs. Rebecca Warrin came to See us.  She tells me her youngest sister Lydia, who marryed a Williams in Uxbridge, dyed lately, of the Meazles.  The Lord Sanctifie it to all Survivers!  Mrs. P________________ poorly.  Messrs. Barnabas Newton, Joseph Bond, with four Oxen apiece — joined to my Team, Jonathan with them — but Elias only a.m., break up at the Island.  Write to Mr. Moore.
