December 5, 1777

1777 December 5 (Friday).  Mr. Moore had designed to go to Oxford, but his mare is too ill to go any further.  I rode to Mr. William Woods, and took Miss Eunice Jones with me as far as her uncle Gale’s.  At Mr. Woods lay the poor young stranger [William Haden?], Sick of a fever and Flux, and dangerously ill.  I went on purpose to see him, but he was delirious.  I prayed with him, but fear his Death is nigh.  I called to see poor GarfieldBreck returned from Lebanon.  A Letter from Mr. Quincy at Lancaster via Worcester dated [blank].
