October 17, 1771

1771 October 17 (Thursday).  Have understood that Ensign Fays Wife has bled a great deal, and that it has continued ever since last Saturday Night.  I made a Visit to her.  She asked me to pray with her.  I enquired for her Husband?  It was answered that he was gone from home.  I conversed and prayed with her.  When I came away she Still (by her daughter Maynard) desired my Prayers.  Mr. Sumner came.  Dined here.  Preached for me a very Seasonable Lecture sermon on 2 Cor. 13.5, Prove your own.
