October 19, 1758

1758 October 19 (Thursday).  Mr. Hutchinson preached my Lecture on Act. 5.31.  N.B. Esquire Samuel Brigham here after Lecture.  Mr. Benjamin Tainter returns from Summers and Brookfield, and confirms the sorrowfull Tidings of the Death of Mr. Woods — that he dyed at Western in his returning from the Army.  A Sorrowful and wide Breach!  The Lord pity his poor Widow and Children — and his aged Mother and miserable Brother Isaac!
