1778 January 19 (Monday). Went to Mr. Daniel Adams junior, his Wife having lain in and is very ill of a Fever. Prayed with her. Dined there. I hear that Dr. Samuel Locke, late President of Harvard College, dyed Suddenly last Thursday about 10 a.m. Lord help me duely to improve this awful Providence! P.M. I visited Capt. Jonathan Fay, very ill of an Asthma. Discoursed and prayed with him. N.B. Elijah Warrin went with me to drive in the Sleigh.
