February 19, 1756

1756 February 19 (Thursday).  The Winds exceeding high last night.  Windy and Cold to Day.  I rode to Marlborough to the Funeral of Dr. Samuel Brigham.  Neighbour Pratt favored me with his Horse — visited the widow of the late Mr. Elisha Ward.  Dined at Mr. Smiths, where was also Mr. Stone.  I prayed before the Corps were carryed out.  This Death is much lamented.  May God Support the Relatives under the Sore Bereavement especially our dear Kinswoman.  I returned home at Evening.  Thomas is come back from Brookfield.  My Daughter Forbush, through God’s Goodness has another Daughter born on the 17th.  May our Covenant God command His Blessing to rest upon her!  And make her a rich Blessing!  Ebenezer here at Evening.
