December 1, 1747

1747 December 1 (Tuesday).  We din’d early and my Wife visited old Mrs. Crouch (Mrs. Rogers’s mother) in her Blindness and lameness.  I also call’d there and took her with me (Mrs. Crouch not able to go) to old Mrs. Dorcas Forbushs,[1] where, according to appointment made in my Name by the Reverend Mr. Martyn last Lords Day I preach’d to the Said Widow Forbush.  Text John 9.4.  A Considerable Assembly.  O that the word of God might have free Course and be glorifed! After the Exercise we visited Martha Ward again and pray’d with her.

[1]Widow of Thomas Forbush.
