January 27, 1736

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[1] 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.

[1]Job Cushing (1694-1760), Harvard 1714, minister of Shrewsbury, 1723-1760.  SHG 6:45-46.
