1781 March 24 (Saturday). Was called to go to Mr. John Fays Child, which is thought to be dying. Prayed, dined there. A Number of Northern Neighbours set up a long Frame for stables, on the back of the Meeting House. Neighbours Nathan Maynard and son, Old Neighbour Hezekiah Pratt and his son Bond, Ben How and Son Warrin, Isaac Parker and Thaddeus Warrin, were there. Three of them came to me to ask leave. I went out and gave them Directions, where to place it.
