1759 November 21 (Wednesday). Mr. Davis prayed. Mr. Maccarty preached a useful good Sermon on Isa. 57.1.2. May the divine Blessing accompany it to my own Heart! That I may be of the truely righteous and upright and that I may have the Peace and Happiness of such. Mr. Gale and Jabez worked to Day — but Jabez went home at Eve. My [wife] while I am gone sees William Dunlop who is returned home. He tells her Jonas Child, in a Batteau on Hudsons River, informed him of my son Thomas’s Death, that he had been his Mess Mate, and was with him when he dyed.
