July 4, 1776

1776 July 4 (Thursday).  I rode up to Mr. Joseph Harringtons to see his Child, and prayed with her.  She has the Dysentery.  In returning went into Deacon Woods (whose wife was lately brought to Bed, and whose Grand Child was still sick).  But thence rode to Southborough.  Dined at Mr. Stones.  P.M. Preached there on Ps. 46.1 and 10.  It was Lecture and Training.  May God grant His own gracious Presence and efficacious Blessing!  I came home by Miss Bulah Bents where I called; also at Mr. William Johnsons and Reuben Bellows’s.
