November 27, 1772

1772 November 27 (Friday).  Capt. Silas Bailey and Mr. Nathaniel Longley of Bolton came here and offered me a Letter, which I prayed them not to leave.  After frequently testifying against their Disorders — till I was weak and faint, they left me without leaving the Letter.  A Stranger enquires the way — says he was cast away at St. Martyns in the great Hurricane; that his Name is Joseph Graham — and that Mr. Graham of Woodbury, in Connecticut, is his uncle etc.
