December 28, 1754

1754 December 28 (Saturday).  Sent Billy over to help his Brother in the forenoon.  P.M. Mr. John Chamberlin of Stockbridge here.  Brings my volume of Chubbs Tracts[1] from Mr. Edwards.  He informs me that Mr. Edwards is very weak and brought down by the Fever and Ague, which has follow’d for some months past, and that the Captain Cuncauput is return’d, a great many of the Stockbridge Indians, perhaps two Thirds of them are gone from the Town.  N.B. Mr. Eleazer Williams brought a Load of Wood.
