1757 July 2 (Saturday). I rode to Shrewsbury. Met Mr. Cushing at Mr. Joseph Knowltons, his Son Nathan being Sick. Called at Mr. Garfields to See him in his low Condition. I prayed at each of these Houses. But what peculiarly affected me was what I met with at Mr. Samuel Fays, his Daughter Dilly being with Child — she says by Aaron Garfield. A most Sorrowful Providence for he has left her, and denys his being the Father of the Child. I lodged at Mr. Cushings and he here.
