August 15, 1774

1774 August 15 (Monday).  Elias returned to Mr. Goddards.  Mr. Thomas Arnold here.  Settled Accounts with him.  A very awfull pinching Drought!  May the Lord extend Compassion, and grant Rain.  I visited Lt. Bruce and prayed with him.  Hear that 1000 regulars are on their march to Worcester.  And that Squire Whipple met with Difficulty at Drurys Mill at Grafton.
