August 8, 1778

1778 August 8 (Saturday).  I rode to Shrewsbury — called at the Door of Mr. Ebenezer Garfield to see Mr. Broad and prayed with him.  Mr. Broad was under a terrible Haemorrhage: had bled at the Nose from yesterday forenoon without ceasing; and was still dropping.  And had some Conversation with the young Scholar Daniel who belongs to Providence Collige.  I lodged at Mr. Sumners.
