1756 July 1 (Thursday). My Kins folks had designed to have left us to Day — but I was not so well as yesterday. (It was windy, and probably I took some Cold. I was feverish, relaxed — appetite depraved.) They would not therefore Spend their Time in visiting any others, nor leave me, since it was evidently very comforting and refreshing to have them here. Only p.m. my wife and Mrs. Procter rode to Mr. Grouts and got me some Metheglin. O that I were indeed in a readiness for the Will of God! N.B. Mr. Procter prayed in my Family in the morning.
