1740 April 14 (Monday). We rode down to the Funeral of Sister Gott. There were Mr. Loring, Mr. Barrett, Mr. Brintnall, Mr. Smith, etc. O that God would make us to know our End, etc., and O that we might hear Christ Saying to us Be ye Ready also, for In Such an Hour as ye Think not, the son of man cometh! Brother Hicks and his son plough’d for me.
Rev. Samuel Barrett of Hopkinton.
Rev. William Brintnal of Sudbury.
Psalm 39.4: “LORD, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is; that I may know how frail I am.”
