January 16, 1778

1778 January 16 (Friday).  Mr. Lovering left us.  N.B. by him I wrote to my Cousen Briant at Stoneham concerning one of his sons living with me, as had been by them motioned to me heretofore.  At Eve came my Sons William and Samuel with their Wives, and Williams little Sally, in a sleigh, having been to Ashburnham to visit their Brother and sister Cushing.  Am informed of a Rupture and Tumult among the Burgoin Soldiers and the Guards, at Charlestown.
