August 31, 1766

1766 August 31 (Sunday).  Read Isa. 34.  Preached a. and p.m. on 2 Thess. 3.1.  Mrs. Maynard and old Mrs. Morse dined here.  P.M. read Joh. 5, latter part.  May God grant we may truely profit by this Days Exercises!  At Eve my Wife and I, after our Family Services, walked up to see Mrs. Wood who seems to be drawing near her End.  Prayed with her.  To my Question Whether She understood so as to join with us?  She answers with a broken almost unintelligible yes.  Her Case very remarkable in this, that she seems not to apprehend that Death is approaching.
