July 26, 1777

1777 July 26 (Saturday).  They ride to Col. Brighams, and Sophy on horseback to Marlborough.  P.M. Col. Job Cushing came, and shews me several Expresses to march to the Westward with all speed.  N.B. Breck was come back from Brookfield.  These fresh and sudden Orders put the people into fresh Trouble, and cause a great deal of Consternation.  I have various unavoidable Interruptions.  Mr. Moses Nurse rowels Brecks mare, as being distempered.
