July 2, 1759

1759 July 2 (Monday).  My Children much indisposed — tis probable some of them have the beginnings of the Meazles.  I visited Lieut. Forbush who as also his son Ebenezer is confined by sickness.  I Should have gone to Hopkinton to see whether Dr. Wilson has a Mind to go Surgeon in the Army, according to the Desire of Dr. Pyncheon that I would; but it prov’d a very rainy Day.  Alexander carelessly fell from the Baldwin Horse and incapacitated him for Business.
