March 6, 1772

1772 March 6 (Friday).  I find by the Public Prints that Mr. David Cutler of Boston, an old Neighbour of Mr. Pierpoints, is dead.[1]  The Reflection on the Remove of the Inhabitants of that one street (Union Street) by Death, Since my Remembrance, is very affecting.  Lord make me know my own End etc.
