February 24, 1777

1777 February 24 (Monday).  I wanted to Visit Widow Bulah Gale whose Husband Mr. Jacob Gale dyed lately at Ticonderoga; also her mother in Law mourning for the Loss of her only remaining son; and her D[illegible] of her late only Brother; but a great snow storm confines me all Day.  I particularly thank God for my many Comforts: and pray for divine pity to all that are in want, and that are now exposed.
