1759 August 12 (Sunday). Met with a great deal of Trouble by Sheep getting into my Corn behind the Meeting House; and Mr. Mannings Horse also unruly, and got into the Corn. It rained and my Sitting in my Chamber with my Feet wet, gave me a Cold. Read Esther 4 and Acts 27. Preach a. and p.m. on 2 Tim. 3.7. May divine Blessing accompany my weak Essays! Mr. Fessenden dines here Every Sabbath. At Night mercifully preserved in the Terrible Storm of Thunder and Lightning. To God be Glory!
