1736 January 27 (Tuesday). The Doctor went home. My Wife a pritty comfortable Day. Hopes bloom that she will recover, by Divine Favour. Mr. Cushing visited us and prayed with us. Jemima Lee watched with my wife, and Deborah with the Child in the Cradle. Mrs. Parkman slept very sound and Seemingly very Comfortable — the Child also but a little Trouble, and I hope in a good way of Recovery.
Job Cushing (1694-1760), Harvard 1714, minister of Shrewsbury, 1723-1760. SHG 6:45-46.
