March 28, 1775

1775 March 28 (Tuesday).  We ride into Boston, though ‘tis Said the Small Pox spreads.  Went to Mrs. Holbrooks.  Put up at Bracketts: hastened to Samuels to see Mrs. Forbes.  She was under the lenient Plaister — was calm and easy.  I saw the sore dressed.  Mr. Forbes, Samuel and I dined at Squire Shaws, being invited there to eat Moose, which was brought from Goldsborough.  P.M. Visit my Brother and prayed with him — Mr. Coverly, Cousen Oliver, Capt. Bradford, who is Sick — Mrs. Tyler, who has had a fit of Sickness, and is grown sober — visit also sister Rebecca and her Neeces, Jarvis’s.  Lodged at Samuels.
