June 4, 1770

1770 June 4 (Monday).  Visited Mr. Daniel Hardys Wife whose Cancer grows much worse.  His Daughter Adams also [weak and?] wasting State.  Prayed with them.  When I have read Mr. Appletons late Fast Discourses, I can’t find any fit Reason for the late House of Representatives to make a Difficulty, as I hear they did, about Printing it.[1]

[1]Nathaniel Appleton (1693-1784), The Right Method….  Discourses on April 5, 1770.  Being the Day of General Fasting and Prayer…and in the Time of the Session of the General Court at Cambridge (Boston 1770; Evans 11,554).
