June 4, 1777

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.
