October 18, 1781

1781 October 18 (Thursday).  Benjamin Harrington being returned from the Camp, Sick and low, I visited and prayed with him — visited at Fortunatus Millers, and at Mr. Eli Whitney’s.  P.M. Mrs. Sarah Harrington (Neighbour Calebs Wife) was here and was examined.  At night Mr. Brigham returned from Boston, brought a new Christall for my watch, 3/.  Informs me that Mr. Cranch’s 6th Volume of Biographical Dictionary (which I had been much concerned about) was at my son Samuels.
