July 6, 1775

1775 July 6 (Thursday).  Mr. Adams proceeds in his Journey, though I know not Whither.  Sophy and Suse Brigham go to Mr. Phinehas Hardy’s on a Visit, in Compliance with repeated Requests.  Mr. John Kelly’s wife comes to desire me to go to old Mr. Higgins who is very ill.  P.M. I went there, but he was unable to converse.  Knowing his Humor, I read to him some Passages out of the Book of Common Prayer: [and?] by Desire I prayed.  I also called at the other Houses on the Road.  At Eve I understood that John has had a poor afternoon — was Sick, and restless.  Mr. Adams returned here from Grafton, and again lodges here.
