1746 June 9 (Monday). Noah Forbush here who gives me a distinct account of the Skirmish with the Indians at No. 4 last Saturday was fortnight when 5 Englishmen were kill’d, one wounded, and one carry’d away Captive. N.B. Noah was in the hottest Engagement, and broke through the Indians though in a Lane, and 70 Rod from the Fort. So memorable the Goodness of God towards him that he got in Safe. N.B. Though the Thunder last Saturday was So Moderate here, yet at Mr. Joseph Wheelers an Horse was kill’d. Training of the South Company and I din’d with the Officers at Captain Fays.
Son of Aaron Forbush of Westborough.
“We hear from No. 4. of the Narragansett-Townships, that on the 24th of May past, four Men were killed by the Indians; another was dangerously wounded, and two more are missing. . . .” The Boston Weekly News-Letter, June 5, 1746.
