December 13, 1770

1770 December 13 (Thursday).  This is the Day of (I suppose) the Execution of [blank] Shaw at Springfield.  P.M. Deacon Cheney of Ashburnham here with Letter from Sarah.  He is in Spiritual Trouble and Darkness and desires to be alone with me.  At Eve Deacon Samuel Baker of Bolton here, and discourses of their Divisions and Contentions with Mr. Goss.  I perceive that he is himself under Uneasiness with him.
