July 2, 1757

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.
