1756 June 28 (Monday). Through the great Goodness of God I gather strength; but I can’t freely read or write yet. It affects my Eyes and disorders me at my Vitals to attempt much of either. P.M. to my great Joy, my dear Kinsman Mr. Procter of Boston and his Spouse, came on purpose to make us a visit. She was never here before. They tarry with us. I send their Horse to Mr. Hezekiah Pratts to be kept. It proves very refreshing to me especially at this time of my illness. Mr. Jacob Amsden made me a seasonable visit (particularly considering what he brought). It is the glorious God who over rules every thing in His holy Providence.
