August 16, 1771

1771 August 16 (Friday).  I have had but a poor night — pained in my Mouth, Sweating, restless: am to day very uncomfortable.  God is righteous in thus dispensing!  Am lonely also, my wife tarrying So long, am full of Fears that all is not well among them.  Still I am pained and disrested — but I attend to my preparations — and can look after my domestic Affairs.  No News from Ashburnham.
