1774 February 3 (Thursday). Mr. Clarke left us. I perceive that Mr. Edward Barnard of Haverhil is dead. Help Lord! My Son Alexander having a good sleigh and two Horses waited on his Mother and me (it being stormy, Snowing fast, and too bad for his wife and Children to go home) to Mr. Eleazar Pratts, to the Funeral of a Child of his Daughter Mrs. Susanna Adams. Mr. Francis Whipple brought home my watch from Boston (the Chain having been broke), and Breck had sent it to Mr. J. Rowlstone at Boston to mend it.
