1727 January 6 (Friday). Brother Champney and Sister Ruth rode with me home. It was very Serene weather but as heavy travelling as I can remember through the Late Excessive Rains. We got home very timely and I found my Family well. God has carry’d me through many a Difficult Journey, and given me great occasion to magnifie his goodness, extended in this Last.
