May 7, 1782

1782 May 7 (Tuesday).  P.M. Col. Cyprian How and Col. Blackden were here, and gave me an Account of the Robbery at Marlborough between last Saturday night and Sabbath morning at Col. Blackdens store.  N.B. Among Suspected Person who were (by Col. Jonathan Ward and Col. Wood) examined Several Men, and there were two women who being of ill fame, were found (particularly one of them) in bad scituation with a Negro Man — yet was She very Bold and impudent — etc. etc.  The Colonels first named had been at Grafton, on the Affair of Search after the Thieves, but without Success.  They returned to Marlborough.
