1777 June 4 (Wednesday). We hear that yesterday’s Storm was more Severe down lower. Five men at Framingham were standing together — Two of which were killed, the other three, though Struck down, recovered; an Horse that was near them was killed. God be praised for His preserving Mercy to us! Hannah rode a little way. Mr. Joshua Hicks dined with us. My Grandson How called here in his way from Dudley to Marlborough. Mrs. P________ sat out (with Breck to accompany her) to Concord. Rev. Mr. Stephen Johnson of Lyme and his Wife, came in late p.m. — and lodged here. My son Alexander also came from Leicester to see his Sister Hannah and lodged here.
