July 10, 1781

1781 July 10 (Tuesday).  Having lately received another Letter from Mr. Forbes I set myself to write an Answer.  Late p.m. came Capt. William Brigham, with the Sorrowful Message that Col. Williams expired this Morning nine o’Clock — 85 last April.  And my Family are desired to attend the Funeral next Thursday at 2 p.m.  And Mr. Whitney is Sent to pray on that Solemn Occasion.
