May 18. 1777
I grieve at hearing that my friend Samuel Scriggins of Kittery died of small pox at the Hospital. This is very sore news and his family will be much distressed at this loss. He is the third member of our crew to die at the Hospital. A young man from the Charming Sally, Ebenezer Willis, also died of the pox at the Hospital yesterday.
