1740 April 10 (Thursday). My Daughter Molly Sick of the Meazles. A sorrowful Message by Ezekiel How that sister Gott was taken suddenly about an Hour before sundown yesterday with an Apoplexy, but partly Epileptical also, and was not thought to continue. I preach’d (Repeated) on Ps. 119.5, and after Lecture I rode to Marlborough and found the Sorrowful Case of sister Gott to be as aforesaid! Lucy with the Measles.
