1774 May 31 (Tuesday).  Mr. Breck and Lady leave us.  I visited aged Mrs. Woods, who dwells at Sergeant Forbes’s.  In returning called at Mr. Morse’s; but he was not at home.  At my Arrival I found my Kinsman Mr. Thomas Loyd was come to see me in his Way to Blandford and with him his Daughter Nabby and his Sister Marshall, who are going with them.  They lodge here. We are informed that probably this Day his late Excellency Thomas Hutchinson Esquire with his second son, Elisha, and youngest Daughter, Peggy, Set Sail for London.
