June 1, 1765

1765 June 1 (Saturday).  Left my Beaver Hat (for which I gave a Guinea to Capt. Maynard, Some time agoe) with Alexander and took what I had bought for him, home with me.  Called at Coll. Buckminsters.  (N.B. Mr. Bridge who lately met with some Disaster and broke his Collar Bone, is not at home, but is gone to Dr. Adams at Waltham.)  We dined at Mr. Stones.  Finally through the Great Goodness of God arrived at our own House in safety and found all we left, well.  But my Daughter Baldwin is here not well.  Several Children in the Neighbourhood have dyed — viz. Mr. Tainters young Child, a Daughter, Mr. Benjamin Garfields, and Mr. Richard Kellys.  I find that Mr. Steward preached last Lords Day: and that a variety of Company have been here — Messrs. Fessenden, John Marrett etc.
