July 19, 1756

1756 July 19 (Monday).  Notwithstanding my Blisters, my Rheumatism increases — Seizes the thick part of my right Thigh.  I am also more feverish — can’t bear to sit at Dinner, yet try, and worry it out.  God be merciful to me a Miserable sinner, under His holy Frowns!  Son Forb. returns from Hopkinton or his Fathers, and sets out for Brookfield.  Mr. Moses Twitchel mows at Newton Meadow.  Billy mows at the Island.  Thomas a while.  P.M. My Brother Samuel left us and went to Hopkinton.  P.M. Mr. Asaph Rice visits me.
