April 5, 1779

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.
