May 15, 1781

1781 May 15 (Tuesday).  Wrote by him to Samuel.  N.B. I went in the morning to see old Mr. Morse of Hopkinton, but found he had expired this morning about or before two o’Clock.  The Widow etc. ask me to come to the Burial and desire me to call at Capt. Morse’s to acquaint him with the designed Funeral.  P.M. I rode into the South West and was Lieut. Grouts, Mr. Elijah Hardy’s, Mr. Underwood, Mr. Benajah Brighams, Mr. Twitchells, Mr. Solomon Millers — then to Mr. Samuel Forbush’s at Upton (where I bought a Pig, of 7 Weeks old).  In returning I called at the Widow Thurstons and at Mr. John Harrington’s.
