August 26, 1723

[1723 August?] 26.  I was sent for in the Evening to visit a sick Young Woman at Mr. Tomlin’s.[1]  I went and pray’d with her.


[No date.]  I walked to the Meeting House with a Pistol in my Hand by reason of Danger of the Indians.  When I return’d was much affrighted with the Sight of an Indian as I suppos’d; but drawing nigher I perceiv’d it was my Landlord.  In the afternoon about 4 o’Clock, there was an Alarm in the North and people hastened with their Arms, But it came to little.
