1750 September 11 (Tuesday). I rode over to the New House hoping to meet Lieutenant Hezekiah Ward, but he came not. Went to Mr. Harringtons and din’d there. Thence to the Burial of a Child of Mr. Eleazer Whitney. Thence with Lieutenant Ward (who came by that time) to view a piece of Swampy Land east of my New House which he says is common Land. We did no more than view it. Ebenezer taken very ill with Pain in his Bowels, vomiting, etc.
Deborah Whitney was only I year old.
