1760 September 11 (Thursday). I rode to Shrewsbury in my Chair; Daughter Sarah with me, drawn by Mr. Parkers Mare. Capt. Allen acquaints me with the Death of his Son Samuel at New Providence. We dined at Mrs. Cushings. Old Madam Prentice there. I preached on 1 Joh. 1.7. After Lecture visit Mrs. Allen in her mourning for her Son. At Eve we returned home well. D.G. Deacon Kimball. N.B. Sorrowful Account from Dr. Crosby of my Neighbour Williams’s Hand, which he slightly hurt in getting Wood; but it has festered greatly.
