1758 October 11 (Wednesday). Rode to Mr. Ephraim Bruce to Enquire of Affairs at the Camp. There I saw Jonas Bradish and I design’d a visit to Mrs. Adams, but found her at Bruce’s. N.B. Mr. Benoni Shurtleff is going to the Camp, for Capt. Aaron Fay who is an Invalid. I wrote by him to Billy and Sent him a Dollar. P.M. Mr. Joseph Miles of Shrewsbury here; he being in a very gloomy State. His Wife is with him. They have News that their Father, old Deacon Miles of Concord is dead. May not only Relatives, but all survivors make a right use of Such a Providence! My little Hannah, having the Fever and Ague, turns Yellow also. Sophy also grows worse.
