October 29, 1780

1780 October 29 (Sunday).  I preached at Hopkinton on Prov. 18.10.  May God grant Success to my own Soul especially.  At eve, I went to Mr. Barrett’s and lodged there!  Mr. Fitch returned from Westborough and tells me the sick little Boy (Silas) dyed last night.  N.B. The Sad News from the North West is confirmed.  Mischief done at Royalton, Schoharie etc.
