February 15, 1765

1765 February 15 (Friday).  Attended the Funeral of John Pratt.  A very mournful Time!  May God Shew Mercy to the poor distressed Father, and the bereaved sisters!  A great Concourse of People, though it was difficult stirring.  Billy is one of the Bearers.  My Wife too tender and lame to be there, but my two Daughters that could, and Breck and John, were there.  The snow is Still so high, that they carry the Corps over the Wall of the Burying Place.  Dr. Crosby here after the burying.
