1775 July 18 (Tuesday). Hannah So bad in the last Night that at about 2 (in the Morn) Elias went for the Doctor — who came. Hannah but very poorly. Mr. Russell carrys his Wife to Watertown. We hear Mr. Moses Nurse has met with a sad Disaster at Malden, fell from his Waggon, and One of the Wheels went over his Body. And that a Number of our Soldiers are sick. Mr. Edmund Rice is extreme bad. At Evening I was desired to go to [illegible] Gale’s Tavern, where he lay. But I was So very much indisposed, that I could not cease long from going to the little House — And besides this I had no Horse. Rev. Hall of Sutton returning from the Army called here, and I prevailed with him to pray with us under our Afflictions: which may God graciously hear and Answer!
