July 24, 1775

1775 July 24 (Monday).  My Neighbour Nurse whose Waggon loaded with salt, ran over him when at Mendon in his late Journey from Salem home, the 14th instant, is got home: and this Morning went to see him.  A wonderful preservation.  To God be Glory!  Samuel to Hopkinton to Wm. B. Townsend.  Mr. Pet. Whitney here, and his sister Briggs.  He prays with [torn] John being very low.  Sally and Hannah [ride in Chaise?] to Capt. Maynards
