October 28, 1776

1776 October 28 (Monday).  I visited old Mr. Eleazer Pratt again, and prayed with him.  Also old Mr. Nurse.  Was at Mr. Childs and Mr. Reuben Maynards.  Dined at Capt. Brooks’s (though unexpectedly) with Mr. Grosvenor.  N.B. A Sick Lad of Capt. Kimbals his Name Elijah; his Age 7, his Disease a Consumption.  We prayed together.  I went to Capt. Witherbys about two young Creatures that are yet left at Ashburnham.  Was at Mr. Nathan Banisters — at Dr. Crosbys, at Mr. Joseph Knowltons, and at Mr. Gershom Brighams.  Neither were all these all the places I went to this short day.
