1776 April 22 (Monday). William Fleet works here in hatchelling Flax. P.M. Visited Mr. Simeon Bellows’s son Daniel sick of a Fever; and prayed there. Heard that Mr. Edmund Chamberlains Wife is very ill of a Fever (soon after Childbearing). I went to see her — and prayed with her. A worthy, pious woman. I returned by Ens. Snows. At home I found my Kinsman Loyd who has been to Boston and is returning to Granville: he lodges here, as does Elijah Brigham, being lately come from Dartmouth College.
