1756 June 25 (Friday). Had a bad night, and am much indisposed to Day — much pain in my stomach etc.: was wholly confined — but it is of the Lords Mercy I am not consumed. Peggy Read said to be dying — sends for me, but I am so ill I can’t go. It proves also an exceeding rainy time. At night I was seized by a very violent Ague which held me shaking about half an hour — which was followed with Fever and held me I Suppose all Night. Sent for Dr. Chase and he Came. It is altogether uncertain what the Sovereign of my Life is now about to do with me. May I be prepared for His holy will! The Indications are now strong.
