October 7, 1778

1778 October 7 (Wednesday).  Stephen Maynard (for the Doctor) brings in a Load of Indian Corn.  N.B. Dogs wound and worry the Doctors and Mr. Ebenezer Forbush’s Sheep.  The Doctors great Dog killed.  I visit Mr. Ebenezer Millers Wife, who was taken ill suddenly and is Still confined.  Prayed with her, and she by her Discourse manifests a good Frame.  Her Husband is full of Resentment of the wrong Measures taken in Town.  In returning I called at Mr. Tainters, especially to see a strange young Woman who has resided there a great while and has a Child there — but she was not at home.  Brother Solomon Batherick and the Widow Thankful Warrin were married.
