December 5, 1768

1768 December 5 (Monday).  Before sunrise Solomon Maynard came for me to go to Capt. Maynards.  I went presently — but the Child expired just before I got there.  I prayed with them.  Captain had met with a bad Fall and hurt him much especially in his Back.  My Wife had been up with them in their Distresses almost all night.  I now brought her home.  Temple (who worked for me last Saturday in building me an Hovel at the East End of the Barn and had lodged here till this morning) goes to work at Lt. Bakers.  P.M. Dr. Hawes and his wife make us a Visit.
