July 9, 1782

1782 July 9 (Tuesday).  I went up to Sarah Newton, who is but just living; I asked a few Necessary Questions — to which She gave intelligible Answers.  I left her designing to return again.  But when I came back She had expired — not half after 8 o’Clock a.m.  It was to visit Mrs. Joanna Fay, who has been long confined by Illness.
