July 28, 1777

1777 July 28 (Monday).  In the morning Mr. Paul Lambson prepared a Coffin, dugg a Grave; and we interred the Abortion.  The Men, provided to march to the westward, gathered to Capt. Maynards early, and repaired to Col. Cushings.  Twenty Four Officers, Soldiers, and a Waggoner go from this Town on this Occasion; and three more go as far as to Brookfield to guard the stores there.  N.B. Breck has obtained to have Moses Brigham admitted in his room to march at this time, considering our present Circumstances in the Family.
