March 13, 1777

1777 March 13 (Thursday).  Attended the Funeral of Mr. Edwards Whipple, prayed at the House of Mourning — and because the Grave was not finished (by reason of the Stoneyness of the Place the Digger was obliged to try three times) I spent Some time in Exhortation to the Company who were at the House.  Mr. Whipple was a Member of our Church — a principal Singer — dyed in the 55th year of his Age.
