January 21, 1761

1761 January 21 (Wednesday).  Visit Mrs. Hills who has lately lain in.  P.M. Mr. Fessenden from Brookfield, he having preached for Mr. Forb. last Lords Day.  Adam Rice carrys money to Boston to Pay Edes and Gill for the News.  And Mr. Daniel Forb. goes to Boston to pay Mr. Draper for his.  Mrs. Miller here.  She lends me her Horse to Visit old Mrs. Forb.  I seriously exhorted both the Old Captain and his son and Daughter to come to divine Ordinances and Neglect Religion and the Care of their Souls no longer.  I also enquired into the State of the Sick Person, as to her inner Man.  Urged the Duty of Self Examination and at the Captains Request prayed with her.  N.B. Alexander works for Neighbour Nurse in their Sledding Wood.
