March 16, 1777

1777 March 16 (Sunday).  In the morning came Mr. Elijah Hardy and informs that Since Day light his Brother Constantine dyed — but it was by means of the Dysentery setting in with the Small Pox.  Another, and very worthy, member of this Church hereby taken away from us!  Help, Lord!  Mr. Kendal preached a.m. on Joh. 12.36, former part.  P.M. he preached on Rom. 8.3.4.  My son Breck was admitted into the Church.  I appointed the Communion and the Lecture.  N.B. Mrs. Maynard and Mr. James Bellows’s Wife, also Miss Nabby Woods, dined here.  Mr. Kendal and Breck, after the public Exercises, went to Mr. Hardys to assist in the Interment of Mr. Constantine.
