October 20, 1742

1742 October 20 (Wednesday).  Mr. Hall preached a moving Sermon on Joh. 5.40.  No crying out in the meeting House, but as I was going home from the Meeting House, Mrs. Ruth Fay, in anguish of Spirit, burst out and went into my House.  I took her into my Study and gave her what Instructions I could.  In the Mean Time Sarah Sparhawk was crying and Screaming upon her Bed in another part of the House.  Many people were in the House below.  Mr. Edwards of North hampton was come, and both he and Mr. Hall assisted me in Ministring to these distressed souls and others that needed.  It was an Evening of great Engagement.  Sent a Letter to Jabez Green.
