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.
