November 23, 1770

1770 November 23 (Friday).  Take a View of Williams Possessions there.  Lodge another Night there.  N.B. By the News Paper I find my dear Kinswoman Mrs. Elizabeth Langdon, is Dead; aged 82.  To be buryed from her Daughter Eliot’s.  I dont remember any other of my first Cousens are now living, on either my Fathers or Mothers Side.  Neither did I ever see either of my Fathers or Mothers, Brothers of sisters, but Cousen Langdons Mother, who was my mothers Sister Susanna.  I once saw my Fathers Uncle Deliverance, who was of Salem; Father of Mrs. Curwin, wife of Rev. Mr. George Curwin.  I also Saw old Mr. John Trask, my grandmother Parkmans Brother.  O that I might be suitably impressed with this Death, that I may be ready also!
