1769 September 1 (Friday). Sophy is better. I wrote to Mr. Barns of Marlborough concerning my Consent to my Son Samuels going to Northfield, that it was on Condition that I be not any Way exposed by it; but wholly indemnifyed. Mrs. Tainter Sends an Horse for Sarah and she goes there, dines, and returns at Evening. Neighbour Daniel Adams comes in at Eve, and I Suppose to acquaint me that his Wife, who was long weakly, low and dying, is brought to bed, and has a Daughter, to their great Joy. Both Mother and Child in an hopefull Way. Would bring it to Baptism next Sabbath.
