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.
