1776 May 31 (Friday). Took a View of the Fortifications on various Eminences. Went to Charlestown; in Ruins — to Bunker-Hill, Winter-Hill, Prospect-Hill. Parted with my dear sons in Law. Rode to Mr. Turells, and was there refreshed, though late for Dinner. T. Appleton came here. I rode to my Kinsman Briant at Stoneham. Lodged there. N.B. Was received with great Joy; and was entertained generously.
