1775 June 5 (Monday). My Son Cushing leaves us, in Order to go to Ashburnham but goes first to Shrewsbury; and takes with him Nabby Loyd, to live with them. As my Wife and Daughter were confined with sickness and had the Doctor with them Yesterday, so the like to day. Near Night came in, Mr. Loyd from his Fathers or Brothers in Blandford. He lodges here.
