August 28, 1780

1780 August 28 (Monday).  On Deacon Wood’s Horse I rode to Mr. Gershom Brigham’s to see his Wife, who is dangerously ill.  The State of her Soul deplorable as well as her Body.  She was very sorry that she had neglected the Lord’s Supper.  She was in much Confusion.  I prayed with her and the Family.  I dined there.  Thence went to visit the North West Corner of the Town, Messrs. Gleason’s, Johnathan Maynard’s, and Samuel Riders, Mr. Thomas Lamson’s (on Edmund Rice’s place), old Mr. James Maynard, and his son Amasa’s.
