September 3, 1744

1744 September 3 (Monday).  I visited Ensign Josiah Rice’s Child, ill of the Cankers; and Captain Forbush who Still lyes sick of a Fever.  The Lord look upon him and be gracious to him.  N.B. Mr. Batchellour and his partner, Mr. Goodhew, flourish in their Coopering at Captain Maynards[1] and to Day sent a Load of Barrells to Boston.  This is the first Load out of the Town.
