March 6, 1756

1756 March 6 (Saturday).  Mr. Daniel Warrin informs that our Kinswoman, Dr. Brighams Widow, is So very ill that it is doubted whether She will live.  P.M. I rode to Marlborough; and, Mr. Smith having Several times expressed his readiness to change, I now desired to, and he complyed.  Whilst he rode to Westborough I visited Mrs. Brigham — found her bad, but her Case not desperate.  She talked freely and with strength.  I lodged at Mr. Smiths.  N.B. Mrs. Dean, Sister to Mr. Smith there.  The sorrowful story of Mr. Cutler minister of part of Exeter confirmed; and is to be deeply lamented.
