October 2, 1776

1776 October 2 (Wednesday).  Having Settled an Agreement with Hastings and paid all that was due, having breakfasted at Barretts, and called at Mr. Cushings at Waltham, I hastened to Concord and dined with my Son Samuel.  P.M. Visit Dr. Minot — Mrs. Emmerson, who had lately lain in, her Husband also gone to Ticonderoga, where he has been Sick; and a man is gone with an Horse to help him in returning home.  At her and her Mother Emmersons request, I prayed with them.  At Eve visited aged Master Minot.  Lodged at my Son Samuels, where was also Mrs. Carter and her Daughter Cary, of Newburyport.
