August 28, 1755

1755 August 28 (Thursday).  Public Fast on Account of Gods Frown upon us in the Expedition to Ohio, and Still to Supplicate divine Favour in the Other Expeditions — viz. to Niagara and Crown Point.  And O that we had a Spirit of Prayer that we might Cry aloud to God for His infinite Mercy — as our Necessity is!  For in Him may we Confide, and in His Name go forth against our Enemies.
