July 3, 1776

1776 July 3 (Wednesday).  Mr. Jonathan How of Grafton came to desire me to go up to Grafton to the Funeral of a Child of his Brother Abner’s — whose Wife also and another Child were very ill.  I went, I prayed.  Mr. Grosvenor was present, but can only whisper.  Went to his House and to Mr. Hutchinsons in my returning home.  Called also at Mr. Joseph Grouts whose Wife has lately been delivered, notwithstanding some peculiar Difficultys.
