July 11, 1776

1776 July 11 (Thursday).  Sat out for Brookfield, but rode 4 miles in the Rain.  Dined with my Daughter Baldwin — then went to Braintree.  In my way called at my Grandson’s Ebenezers who is lately marryed to Miss Sarah Lyscomb, daughter of Capt. John Lyscomb.  Arrived at my Sons So seasonably as to go to Mr. Ruggles’s, and (by Desire) to visit old Mrs. Wilson (who used to live at Hopkinton) and prayed with her.  Lodged at Ebenezers.  N.B. Mr. Bradshaw lame.
