June 4, 1752

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,[1] but the Doctor not yet return’d from Court.

[1]Dr. Joseph Pynchon (Harvard 1726), the physician of Springfield and justice of the Hampshire County Court of Common Pleas.  Sibley, VIII, 90-92.
