February 24, 1756

1756 February 24 (Tuesday).  Sat out, on my sons Mare, for Boston.  Mr. Stone had sent to me, but the Message had not arrived, to assist him in a Fast next Thursday in Southborough on Account of the Sickness there.  N.B. five lay dead yesterday in that place.  Old Mr. Graves and his wife were buryed there to day in one grave.  When I got to Mr. Bridge’s at Framingham it was so cold and late that I tarried there over Night.
