1779 April 5 (Monday). Capt. Fisher here a.m. Borrows the London minister’s Sermons on Prayer. I write to Mrs. Brown, widow at my son Samuel’s at Boston, concerning Letters sent by a Female Society at Boston to Father Loring. P.M. I had Dr. Hawes’ mare to go to Bolton. I first rode over to see Mr. Daniel How, whose case, with his mortifying Toe is deplorable! He was somewhat free to speak. I prayed with him. Proceeded to Mr. Whitney’s and lodged there.
