April 18, 1778

1778 April 18 (Saturday).  Mr. Simon How of Marlborough here with a Letter from Mr. Smith and the Church there respecting his Dismission.  Mr. John Forbes here with a Petition for a Contribution.  N.B. his Wife lies in a very low Condition.  By Reason of the many Avocations this Week I could compose but part of my Preparations for the Sabbath.
