1777 November 27 (Thursday). Mrs. Mary Crosby (Widow) who has lived here for more than two years, now leaves us. Mr. John Harrington by the Direction of the select me of this Town, takes her into his Waggon, to transport her to Boston. May god graciously restrain her from Vice, convert her to Himself, and eternally Save her!
N.B. Elias so looses his time from Day to Day that I am full of Trouble, and I could not but complain and resent it.
