May 21, 1781

1781 May 21 (Monday).  My Son Samuel and his Wife leave us to go to Norwich.  Wrote to Mr. Wight.  I visited my Brother Stone and found him very ill of a Fever.  His Mind much exercised.  Prayed with him, dined there.  P.M. I returned — calling at old Lt. Brighams and got Ointment of Mrs. Brigham for Mrs. P____’s Leg: which is now a days very bad.  I went to Capt. Edmund Brighams and discoursed with him and his Wife of their Guilt etc.  Alas!  with too little success!
