1744 July 20 (Friday). Thomas Carted home the last Load of the Meadow Hay. P.M. a very Considerable Thunder Storm but we and ours mercifully preserv’d. D.G. May we have, and ever Maintain the true, holy filial Fear of God and be Cur’d of a slavish Dread which keeps us in Bondage and gives Torment! For Blessed is the man that (truely) feareth alwayes!
