December 6, 1779

1779 December 6 (Monday).  Was called away to see a young Son of Capt. Jonas Brigham, viz. his son William in his 12th year, who was thought to be under extremely dangerous Symptoms.  I went, prayed, breakfasted there.  P.M. Town Meeting by Adjournment.  Capt. Morse was here, full of earnest advice and Entreaty that I would send something to the Town of my Thanks for what they had done lately for me, and my  satisfaction in it.  I accordingly wrote a paper and sent it by Mr. Joseph Harrington, and he was here at eve to acquaint me how it was accepted, and he believed it was well.
