January 10, 1775

1775 January 10 (Tuesday).  My Son Forbes and his Wife came from Cape Ann, but last from Mr. Brooks’s at Medford.  Their Daughter Coffin brought forth a Daughter (whom they have called Polly) on December 30 last.  To God her Deliverer be Glory and Praise!  May the Child be new-born and an Instrument of the divine Glory!  They lodge here.  My Daughters Trouble in her Breast somewhat mitigated, by Methods used by Friend Pope of Boston.  Thanks to the Supreme Healer!
