December 6, 1767

1767 December 6 (Sunday).  Omitt Reading.  Preached on Ps. 34.8.  Took in the Whitneys and administered the Lords Supper.  Mrs. Maynard dined here.  P.M. Preached with proper Alterations etc. on Prov. 13.21.  At Eve was sent for by Mr. Solomon Baker to visit his surviving Daughter, Sarah (in her 8th year), who is thought to be nigh Death by the Throat Distemper.  I went — found her low indeed — prayed with them in their Distresses.  She was taken ill but a Day or two before, and now can hardly fetch a Breath.
