July 28, 1759

1759 July 28 (Saturday).  Was in Expectation of my Brother Samuel and his Daughter Nabby; but the Rain I Suppose prevents them.  Sent Alexander to Shrewsbury to Mr. Henry Baldwins for Lucys Horse; but he was not yet brought there.  Lt. Forb. here to acquaint me that his sons Child was Dead.  A sore stroke!  To have another son taken away.
