1777 February 5 (Wednesday). Our Expectations of Mr. Cushing’s coming utterly fail. It is Rainy, and the Snow is washed away. Sam and Sally disappointed of their intended Ride to Ashburnham — p.m. cleared so that I visited Nehemiah Maynards Wife’s Child which is very bad. Prayed there. Visit Squire Whipple also, he being very ill — prayed with him. In returning I called at squire Bakers. N.B. Monsieur Pierre Robishow there.
