April 27, 1779

1779 April 27 (Tuesday).  My son Samuel returned to Boston, leaving his Wife, with his Chaise here; who before dinner grew so uneasy, that with Tears, she prayed me to get some Neighbors to carry her in her chaise to Boston.  Indeed her husband was but just out of sight, when she repented her staying behind, and would have had him called back.  N.B. I sent by my Son to Mrs. Eliz. Brown, at her request for some of his papers, two manuscript sermons of Mr. Loring, one on 1 Joh. 4.9, the other on Gal. 2.20.  We are every day perplexed by the unruliness of the Sheep.
