July 22, 1775

1775 July 22 (Saturday).  We were Surprized about 9 or 10 o’Clock a.m. with Johns Bleeding again.  The Blood came up by a little Cough, as it did before.  He was himself alarmed — “must bid the world Adieu!” — said he.  Yet P.M. he was more comfortable inasmuch that Mr. Stone coming to change with me, I ventured to leave him.  But I did not go to Southborough.  Mr. Fitch went there, and I to Hopkinton and lodged at Mr. Fitch’s.
