October 25, 1782

1782 October 25 (Friday).  Mrs. P________ is under grievous Exercise by her Cough Still, though Dr. Haws is using his best Endeavors to help her.  A.M. Cousen Maynard with their Carriage, driven by Mr. Stephen, her Son, took up Several of us, and we rode to the House of Mourning in Marlborough, the late Dwelling of Lt. Uriah Brigham, and dined there.  P.M. Rev. Mr. Fitch of Hopkinton came and prayed.  I rode to and from the Grave in the same Manner.  The whole has been a very Solemn season.  May the Impression be abiding!  We waited for Moon-Lig[ht] and then in a Cold Evening arrived here.  Thanks to God!
