November 29, 1756

1756 November 29 (Monday).  Was at Mr. Rolf’s, where came Mr. Solomon Prentice.  I was also at Lt. Forbush’s, a.m.  P.M. and Evening am reading some of the incomparable writings of Mrs. Rowe.  To which are added some of her Husbands: Mr. Thomas Rowe.  But I have abundant Reason to humble my Self before God for the Great Unprofitableness of my Life; and am divers ways under Gods holy Frowns.  May the Lord grant me the Grace necessary for me that I may seriously reflect; and that I may be Quickened to New Obedience, that through the Merits of the glorious Jesus I may be recovered, and obtain the divine Favour!
