April 1, 1767

1767 April 1 (Wednesday).  Miss Bridget Cushing came (by help of her Brother John) to tarry a little while.  Capt. Baker of Bolton comes with an Horse for me to go to Deacon.  Find him very low; Dr. Darling and Dr. Ball there and do all that in them lies — but strive in vain to put up his Bowels into place.  Excrements (as tis conceived) are voided at his Mouth.  Prayed with him.  Mr. Andrews being there I gave the Deacon an Hint to exhort him to peace — which he did, and both of us: and was much in Exhortation to all.  Parted with him very Solemnly.
