January 12, 1770

1770 January 12 (Friday).  I attended the Funeral of little Abner Whipple (Son of Mr. Francis Whipple), nigh 4 Years old.  A Child much set by, and which the Grand Parents had Set much by.  He was taken ill but last Monday, and dyed yesterday morning Some time before Day.  N.B. Mr. Jonathan Park of Sutton brought my Watch last Night from Mr. Rogers of Newtown, Cleaned and Set to rights as I hope.  I suppose Ensign Miller has been clearing in my Chauncy Swamp, he having been here yesterday and desired to bargain with me about it.  And Some body has been at work to day there, as I conceive.
