September 3, 1778

1778 September 3 (Thursday).  Mrs. Broad, I understand, has been delivered of a son, but it was dead — and to day it is buryed; I attended and prayed.  I hear that there was general Stir at Boston and Towns round about, yesterday, fearing the British Fleet was coming in — but it came to Nothing.  Mrs. Crosby, Mrs. Baker etc. made a Visit here to See Mrs. P_________ who is (through divine Goodness) grown better.
