July 3, 1769

1769 July 3 (Monday).  Rode to Marlborough principally to visit Brother Smith under his distressing Trouble by Pain and Faintness at his Stomach.  In my Way I called at Several Places — at Cornet Brighams, at Widow Beemans, at Mr. Jabez Rices, Cousen Larkin Williams who is very much demolished, I fear in all regards.  May God be merciful to him and his!  I dined at Mr. Smiths.  I am grieved for his Sufferings!  May God be gracious to him.  Visit Mrs. Dexter and Dr. Curtis who lodges there.  Visit at Squire Brighams, in pursuit of a good Horse.
