September 20, 1756

1756 September 20 (Monday).  A.M. was at the Burial of Mr. Noah How’s Child, which was at the Middle Burying-place.  Notwithstanding this I dined at Home and p.m. took my wife up into the Chair and attended the Funerals of Lt. Maynards Children; both buryed in one Grave and in one Coffin.  A very sorrowful Time, and This especially an affecting Spectacle!  N.B. I was invited by Deacon Forbush to the Raising of his saw-Mill, but Providence called me to other Work!
