1777 February 10 (Monday). A.M. was at the Funeral of Mr. Jonathan Grouts young infant. Visit Capt. Jonathan Fay who has the Asthma and bad Cough. I visited also Mr. Daniel Nurse, who has the Rheumatism. Prayed there, his aged Father and his sister attending. I dined with the younger Family. P.M. delivered Mr. Benjamin How my Gun to mend the stock.
It is a remarkable Day. The Town Meet to consider the Courts Act for Regulating the Prices of Things and The Companys Meet to enlist soldiers. The Committees from 5 Neighbouring Parishes meet to Consult and Advise together upon those difficult matters — But I know not to what purpose as to either of those Affairs.
