October 19, 1736

1736 October 19 (Tuesday).  We hope Ebenezer is a little better.  Trooping and Training, but a rainy Day.  Prayed in the Meeting House with the Companys.  Dined with the Officers.  Dr. Gott came up to Mr. Seth Rice’s Son, by which I had advantage for a Visit from him to Ebenezer.  The Canker rose very visibly upon the inside of his Throat but not Swelled a great Deal nor very troublesome to him — <but?> his Fever not so high.  Mrs. Whipple[1] kindly visited us.  Sarah Ward and Deborah watched.  N.B. Sent an Answer to Mr. Stone.  See Oct. 15.
