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.
