January 9, 1755

1755 January 9 (Thursday).  At Captain Forbush’s, heard that Mr. Daniel Hastings dy’d on the 7th having had the Mumps and took Cold.  It was very Surprizing — may God sanctify it to us, as well as to his own Relations!  He dys in the midst of his Glory and gaiety — was just going to be married — but that very Day his Thoughts perish.
