February 3, 1759

1759 February 3 (Saturday).  Mr. Abijah Gale was here — acquaints me that his Wife cannot hold Communion with Mrs. Ward, the Judge’s Wife: But I refuse to Meddle with the Affair any further than to direct to her Duty and advise to it.  Am not without some deep Impressions from the Solemn subject I am preparing upon.  Did not go to Bed till after Midnight.  My Body was much wasted — and I grew faint — but my Mind filled beyond what I could write.
