1777 January 13 (Monday). Billy Spring comes to live with Breck at his store. I read Mr. Howe’s Excellent Book of the Blessings of the Righteous. Jonas Sartle of Groton, an Invalid from the Army, came in, and lodges here. N.B. I had been at Deacon Woods — his grand-Daughter Polly is Sick — at her Desire, prayed with her.
