September 25, 1755

1755 September 25 (Thursday).  I made a Visit to Mr. Seth Rice’s.  He was not at Home.  He is gone to Dr. Smiths.[1]  His Family greatly distress’d for him, being grown worse of late — pain’d in Body as well as discompos’d in Mind.  Dr. Smith came there.  We rode together to see Lieutenant Stephen Maynard who is Sick of a Fever.  His Son Antipas also Sick and the Family in much Trouble.  Pray’d with them.  N.B. Josiah Lock, of the Same Family, Set out to go to Crown Point.
