1766 October 9 (Thursday). We dined at my Son Parkman’s. He is badly affected with pains in his Leggs, by which he is much taken off. What a Flock of Children surround us: they have Seven. May the Lord command his Blessing on Every one! And make them rich Blessings in their Generation! P.M. Visit Mrs. Gilbert: and proceed to Capt. W[ill?]. We lodge at my Son Baldwins. He flourishes in earthly Emoluments and his Wife is healthier. May God bless them and theirs, with highest Spiritual Blessings.
