1778 July 1 (Wednesday). Mr. Cushing goes early to Lancaster after his Horse. Mr. Edwards of Boston, Cabinet Maker, came in and was at Breakfast, then goes on his way to Worcester. News confirmed, of a Battle in the Jersies. Mr. Ripley goes with my Daughters Cushing and Sophy to Shrewsbury. P.M. came Mr. Aaron Crosby (now preacher at Blandford) from Boston and Cape Ann. No Mr. Forbes Come, though much expected. It is probable that he is detained by means of the Separating Preacher Murray’s being there. Mr. Crosby (after Tea) went to Grafton.
