January 27, 1776

1776 January 27 (Saturday).  Mr. Bowen here, going to preach at Chauxit.  He asks Advice, which I cannot give.  Refer him to Mr. Stone who was at the Council there, and has the Result (which I have not).  As was Mr. Whitney, and has it also (I suppose) and therefore he goes there.  At Eve I went to Mr. Nathaniel Whitneys, who was dying.  He departed while I sat there.  I prayed with the living — and then returned.
