October 18, 1776

1776 October 18 (Friday).  I visited Several Families in the South East Corner.  Dined at Mr. Ithamar Bellows’.  Went to See Solomon Estes, who lies under a broken, but new sett Bone, at Mr. Ezra Baker’s.  By Desire I prayed there.  Visited old Mr. Chamberlain, called at his Son Ebenezer’s likewise by reason of the News that Joshua is taken prisoner by the Regulars at N.Y.
