1781 July 10 (Tuesday). Having lately received another Letter from Mr. Forbes I set myself to write an Answer. Late p.m. came Capt. William Brigham, with the Sorrowful Message that Col. Williams expired this Morning nine o’Clock — 85 last April. And my Family are desired to attend the Funeral next Thursday at 2 p.m. And Mr. Whitney is Sent to pray on that Solemn Occasion.
