July 24, 1777

1777 July 24 (Thursday).  Although the Regiment which is now Suddenly raised by the foresaid Alarm, was appointed to meet at Grafton to Day, Yet Elmer Cushing brought from his Father Orders of the Council, not to March till further Notice, but to hold themselves in Readiness for the very shortest Warning.  Hannah is a little better at times, but fear, not in the main.  She rides a little almost every Day.  Sophy takes the principal Care of her Day and Night.
