1758 August 2 (Wednesday). Dr. Hemingway came in the morning and opened my Wife’s Breast. Dr. Rice was also present. It was no more than a blood-letting, as to the Doctors part. My Wife bore it with a good Spirit. Its issue was corrupt Matter and Blood. The Doctors went to Breakfast with me. Dr. Hemingway asked me 40/ old Tenor. I gave him 4 Pissarenes, which was to his Content. About 11 I Sat out for Brookfield. Did not dine till I got to Capt. Curtis’s. At 3 1/2 p.m. sat off from thence. Called at my son Baldwins to rejoice in the divine Goodness to them — but lodged at my Daughter Forb. whose Child is yet alive, but is very weak, tender, premature Babe. Rice (Ebenezer) of College, lodged with me there.
