September 16, 1771

1771 September 16 (Monday).  As this Day begins my 69th Year, Such is the Long suffering of God towards me!  I took some peculiar religious notice of it.  May the Lord graciously accept my humble Attempt!  Wrote to Breck by Mr. Levi Brigham junior of Monadnock who yesterday delivered us a Letter from him, which informs that lately he met with a Wound at a Raising.  A Timber fell on his Right Hand, which broke one of his fingers, and hurt two more.  John returns from Concord and Boston.
