April 3, 1759

1759 April 3 (Tuesday).  My Wife no better.  Send for the Doctor but in vain.  Delivered a 33£ (old Tenor) piece of Gold and another of 18 O.T. to Mr. Daniel Forb. to carry, the first to Col. Brigham, the other for Capt. Ezra Taylor of Southborough.  A Comet was Seen this Morning.  P.M. attended the Funeral of Mrs. Dorothy Maynard, wife of Mr. Reuben Maynard Aged about 35 or 36.  A very sorrowful instance of human Frailty!  Her first Fit was Sudden, on Thursday last — after which she never recovered.  May God Sanctifie this awfull stroke.  My Wife still worse.
