July 22, 1777

1777 July 22 (Tuesday).  My Son Samuel comes from Concord with his sister Baldwin and dined with us.  P.M. Samuel returns home — leaves Chambers Dictionary, 4 Vols. only.  He takes with him Mason on self-Knowledge.  Mrs. Elizabeth Harrington made us a kind, Sisterly visit.  Mr. William May brings me somewhat more Account of the Evacuating Ticonderoga — that it was most probably by Treachery.  At night we hear a Post is come for our Militia to march to Providence.  And Sad News from Otter Creek.  Deacon Wood kindly Visits me, and brings a Present of green Peas.
