April 22, 1776

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.
