March 12, 1776

1776 March 12 (Tuesday).  Capt. Wheelock early, Suddenly, hastily calls me to Visit Mrs. Piper as being near her End.  I rode speedily (before Breakfast — nay before Family Prayer), found her groaning as in very great Distress.  Prayed with her, Commending her Case to God, most gracious and compassionate.  Read in Flavell on Fear.  Deacon Batchellor of Grafton, brought home a Piece of Diaper which he has been weaving for us.  The Measure is 35 Yards.  For Weaving I payd him £7.0.0 old Tenor in full.  Mrs. Piper dyed about noon, about 42 and an half.
