June 12, 1775

1775 June 12 (Monday).  In the Morning Col. Pitkin again sent his Clerk with the like Request, the Company being Paraded before the meeting House.  I went, and for Convenience of speaking stood on the steps of the Front Door.  May the God of infinite Goodness and Pity hear our Supplication!  It appeared to be a brave, well ordered Company of an 100.  Their Musick was by two Drums, two Fifes and a Trumpet.  The Lord of Hosts prosper them and return them with Joy!  Elias I was obliged to send to Leicester with William Bradfords Cloths, they having lain too long at Capt. Maynards for Conveyance.
