April 17, 1759

1759 April 17 (Tuesday).  Billy leaves us to go into the Service.  Alexander goes with him to help him on his way, as far as Shrewsbury.  N.B. I gave him six Dollars; and he gave me a province Note of 8£ L.M. or 60£ Old Tenor.  My Wife has her Fitts of Ague and Fever — but I hope She is not so bad as heretofore.  Samme has the Fever and Ague.  Visit Mr. Nurse and prayed with him.  Cousen Maynard here — N.B. my ride to Mr. Jonathan Fay for money.  Mr. Woodward and his wife ride to Sutton — but they did not alight — for I was not at home — but met them near Capt. Woods.
