August 21, 1742

1742 August 21 (Saturday).  Once More took a Solemn Farewell of my dear and honoured Mother whom I left in some Measure of Comfort both of Mind and Body compared with what she had been; but yet very weak and low still — looking, panting and full of Earnest Desires after God and the Manifestations of his Grace.  Dined at Cambridge.  Entertained kindly at Mr. Darlings on the Road.  Found my Family more Comfortable than I feared.  Mr. Jenison here.  N.B. Cool Night.
