October 22, 1778

1778 October 22 (Thursday).  About 3 in the morning we were alarmed by Breck; Suse being in Travel.  About Sunrise a little Daughter was born; and both Mother and Child in an hopeful State.  All Glory to God the Deliverer!  May His Goodness be perfected!  The Company of Women, with Dr. Ball broke fast here — with Mr. B. Bradshaw, who with Cousen [illegible] Brigham dined here also.  P.M. rode to Mr. Gershom Brighams and Solemnized the Marriage of his son Seth to Ruth Palmer.  As I went, I called to see a Child of Mr. Joseph Green junior and Prayed there.  In returning Mr. [blank] Hancock wait’d upon me to lead back the Horse I rode upon.
