1777 March 11 (Tuesday). I went to Squire Bakers, but he is gone to his Brother Solomon, who is at Dr. Whites at Holliston by reason of a grievous sore in his Cheek. Mr. P. Whitney here. P.M. hear that Mr. Edwards Whipple is very ill with a sore Throat and Canker. I went immediately to see him — but he was dead before I got to him. A sorrowful Sudden Death! The Lord grant I may be ready for my own! Prayed with the afflicted Mourners.
