1776 June 27 (Thursday). I again went out to the Team, to see and Speak with Mr. Fessenden but he was not there. I walked up to Ensign Fays to see his Daughter Mrs. Rhoda Maynard who lives at her Fathers, having at time, very bad Fitts. They are jealous She has been poisoned. I heard (I suppose) Ensigns Voice in the House, but he did not come in to see me. Mrs. Spring has a Letter from her Husband at Albany of June 9. P.M. I went to See Mr. Ebenezer Forbush’s Children Sick of the Throat-Distemper. Abner (of near 10) very bad. Katy (of about 8) not quite so ill; yet has a strong Fever. I prayed with them. Abner dyes before night. Was uneasy that I did not See Mr. Fessenden but could not go there o’ foot.
