September 24, 1757

1757 September 24 (Saturday).  Mr. Joshua Winter and his Wife (from Boston Yesterday) came to see us, and dined with us.  They lodged last night at Brother Baldwins at Sudbury.  N.B. This morning Coll. Tim. Brighams Wife dyed.  She was taken (as is Supposed) with an Apoplexy last Evening and continued till about 2 this Morning.  They Sent Jonathan Johnson to me to desire me to attend her Funeral next Tuesday.  Such a sudden Death administers Solemn Warning to all survivors.  May God grant us all the Grace needful that we may make a fit improvement of it!  And get ready our selves!
