June 27, 1775

1775 June 27 (Tuesday).  John has Slept well, last night, and for Several Nights, but is exceeding Weak and low: A Small Cough continually attends him also.  Read Dr. Stiles’s Discourse on saving Knowledge.  A very learned, Sensible, judicious work.  May God grant me Grace to profit by it!  Capt. Wheelock is here, and gives me some Account of the Charleston Fight, agreeing with Fisher.
