1752 June 4 (Thursday). I rode over to Brookfield Town when the Company was gone with Deacon Forbush to visit Lieutenant Aaron Forbush under his terrible Cancer. [N.B. We call’d in to see Captain Ayres.] The sore which Lieutenent is distress’d by has altered him extremely — but he is much Supported. I lodg’d at Dr. Pynchons, but the Doctor not yet return’d from Court.
Dr. Joseph Pynchon (Harvard 1726), the physician of Springfield and justice of the Hampshire County Court of Common Pleas. Sibley, VIII, 90-92.
