January 11, 1780

1780 January 11 (Tuesday).  Mr. Forbes still alive, but no Horse can go in the deep snow, but I have no Racketts nor Strength to go far, as to visit him.  Send my Love and Sympathy by those who (eight of them) draw on an Hand Sled his two Daughters Forbush and Bond to see him before he dies.  My Heart is much with him, and to God for him.  Mr. Hannaniah Parker returning from him comes in at eve to let me know he is yet alive, though with signs as they think of Death upon him.  May it please God to be almightily present with him!  His Brother Fisk has been on Racketts there.
