October 12, 1774

1774 October 12 (Wednesday).  Took leave. At the earnest request of old Mr. Thomas Bartlett, I turned aside to visit him.  Dined at Col. Henshaws.  Comforted Alexander with informing him that I had hired and received money for him.  Called at Mr. Maccartys, at Mrs. Stearns’s, at Mr. Sumners.  Arrived in safety.  Deo Grates plurimas ago.  The Family that are here, are in some Comfort, but my Son Breck has waited on his Mother in her designed Journey to Ashburnham and is returned home.  Asa is lame, but husks in the Barn.
