February 10, 1759

1759 February 10 (Saturday).  Job Lane returns to Brookfield and carrys 4 Dollars from me to Mr. Forb; Interest.  My son Ebenezer to pay him 4 more on my Account.  N.B. Master Bowman returns from Cambridge because of the Meazles.  He informs me that sister Barretts Daughter Hannah (of about 21) dyed of the Meazels, and is buryed this week, and that Coll. James Minot of Concord is Dead also.  He brings me a Letter from the Widow Hill of Cambridge to whom I had sent him to excuse my not sending Interest to her by him, for that I knew not his going down in any season to provide it.
