September 30, 1756

1756 September 30 (Thursday).  Visited Neighbour John Rogers again who is very ill.  Went also to See Mr. Ebenezer Forbush’s little son again, who remains very low.  The Sorrowful News from the Army is confirmed, of the multitudes which have dyed by Sickness, and of the great Slaughter made lately by the Indians upon a Scout of our Men that were going from one fort to t’other.  We hear that they consisted of 44 or 5; and all were shot down but 4, who escaped to the Fort.  May God awaken us under Such repeated and heavy Frowns!
