June 20, 1775

1775 June 20 (Tuesday).  Aaron watched with John last night, and is blooded himself by Dr. Hawes this morning.  John very weak and low.  The Association (which has now continued 50 Years) Met here, though my House is full of Trouble.  Viz. Rev. Messrs. Stone, Smith, Goss, and Bridge.  There were also Rev. Messrs. P. Whitney, Jacob Biglow, Jonathan Newell, and Jacob Rice.  The 3 former of these were admitted into the Association and signed the Articles.  N.B. Mr. Shaw dined with the Ministers and still tarrys with us.  John is very low.  May a gracious God look upon him!  Samuel returns at midnight from Cambridge and informs me his goods etc. which were left in Charlestown are burnt by the Regulars, also 4 feather Beds of Mr. Loyds.
