June 1, 1781

1781 June 1 (Friday).  I rode up to Reuben Maynards to See his Wife who is very low — trouble in her Mind about her Guilt (which She confesses) impresses her Body, most probably.  Prayed with her.  I bore the Ride with Difficulty.  Called to See the Widow Smith, who is still very low.  Her Brother, Deacon Samuel Miles lies dead.  Mr. Brigham from Hardwick.  Mr. Cushing from Shrewsbury.  At Eve came Old Mr. Batheric and Mr. Samuel Forbush.  Mr. Daniel Adams also came.  They want the Church Should meet to Consider of Adams’s Difficultys, but have prepared nothing, upon which I may proceed.  I was very feeble and they kept me too late.
