November 21, 1759

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.
