February 10, 1777

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.
