July 10, 1776

1776 July 10 (Wednesday).  Mr. Pope left us.  I borrowed Mr. Jonathan Maynards Mare to go to New Braintry.  Sat out after Dinner and got to Leicester.  In my way called at Dr. Crosbys, Mr. Sumners and Mr. Maccartys.  N.B. Highlanders at Worcester Court House.  Lodged at Alexanders.  He has listed indeed; and is preparing for his March, as Eldest Sergeant and Clerk.  He seems inclined and determined to go.  Their Destination is New-York.
