October 28, 1758

1758 October 28 (Saturday).  My Daughter Baldwin, her son and Mrs. Gilbert go to Sudbury, Thomas having returned with Mrs. Brigham and her Son.  P.M. to my sorrow was again interrupted and called away.  Mr. John Maynard came for me to go to his Brother Phinehas’s little son Joel (about 2 Years old) who had fallen into a Kittle of boiling water, and they fear Death is nigh.  I went.  Returned at Eve.
