1779 September 9 (Thursday). This morning our neighbor Lamson who has been a long time very miserable was delivered of a fine large Boy, to our great Rejoicing. Blessed be God, the God of Salvation and may He perfect her Recovery! Alexander and Breck go to Worcester and return. David Fay and Patience [Harvey?] were married. My son Alexander is still here, and lodges here.
