September 29, 1756

1756 September 29 (Wednesday).  Capt. Maynards Funeral.  Mr. Martyn was there with me — and from thence came to our House.  My Wife and Billy in the Chair to Marlborough (having left little Sophy at Ebenezers, his wife to suckle her, and Sarah to tend her) in order to her going to Boston.  The Death of Capt. Maynard is on many accounts a great Loss; but especially to poor people.  May God raise up Charitable and Beneficent ones in his Stead!
