October 23, 1745

1745 October 23 (Wednesday).  My Wife and I were at the Funeral of Mr. Gershom Brighams other Child.  We visited Mr. Daniel Warrin of Shrewsbury who had several Convulsion Fitts of late, and was much concern’d.  We also visited Mr. Samuel Fay junior who (with Several of his Children Sick likewise but himself) lyes very bad.  When I came home found Mr. Mighel[1] here (See the Catalogue of Harvard Scholars 1704).  He had been at my house and lodg’d here while I was on my late Journey to Boston — and now lodg’d again.  Captain Warrin I understand has agreed with him to keep our School.
