April 13, 1775

1775 April 13 (Thursday).  Hearing that Mrs. Flagg of Boston was come up to Gales after Caesar (her Mother Surcombs Negro) and was detained there by the storm, I rode down there, in the Morning; but she and two sons with her (Thomas and Richard Surcomb) were gone.  Therefore I visited in the South East Corner.  Was at Mr. Snows, widow Bellows’s; and then (which was my chief Design) went to see Mr. Ezra Baker who is sick of a Fever.  Discoursed and prayed with him.  Dined there also.  Was at Mr. Bellows’s — at Ebenezer Chamberlins, and at Artemas Bruce’s.
