October 30, 1756

1756 October 30 (Saturday).  Mr. Solomon Woods here and informs me they are very ill at Deacon Forbushs and desire me to visit them.  I went accordingly and found the Young Deacon not well, but growing worse.  Several of his Children ill, but especially two of his Daughters in a Dangerous State, Joanna but especially SarahRufus Putnam also very ill there.  All of them the Distemper.  I dined there.  Old Mrs. Forb. is also drooping.
