Paul Lunt's Diary free pdf Excerpt from Paul Lunt's Diary: May-December, 1775 The following diary, kept by Lieutenant Paul Lunt, of Newburyport, during a part of the Revolutionary War, came into my possession for a short time, through the kindness of the Hon. George Luut. of this city. Extracts from it were read at the meeting of the Massachusetts Historical Society, for February, 1872, and it is published in full in their Proceedings of that date. A small edition is now printed from the forms used at that time. The spelling and punctuation have been made to conform to modern usage- and a change in the arrangement of some of the dates has also been made for the sake of uniformity. With these exceptions the diary is printed as it was written. For the following sketch of the writer I am indebted to Mr. Lunt. Paul Lunt was a descendant of Henry Lunt, one of the original settlers of the town of Newbury, in the year 1600. His descendants still occupy the farm in Newbury (Oldtown) on which he resided. He was a first lieutenant of the company commanded by his kinsman, Ezra Lunt, at Bunker Hill. Of this company, one of the historians of Newburyport, Mrs. E. Vale Smith, says: "The Rev. Jonathan Parsons having made an appeal at the close of one of his sermons, in which he called on his hearers to form volunteer companies, and invited those to walk out into the broad aisle who would do so, Mr. Ezra Lunt was the first to do so- and a volunteer company was immediately formed, with Ezra Lunt as captain. His was the first volunteer company formed for the purpose of joining the continental army." The same historian, writing of the final retreat of our troops from the redoubt on Bunker Hill, says: "Captain Ezra Lunt's company was ordered up to cover the retreat of these exhausted troops, whose ammunition was now all expended.
