1772 April 3 (Friday). One of the most Violent and impetuous Storms of Snow! Blessed be God for the Protection and the Comforts which I and mine are favored with! May it please God who is a present Help in the Time of Trouble, to extend Compassion to all Such as are at this uncommon season, in Distress and Extremity, if Such there be, and mercifully relieve them! O may I fear the Great God! And may I be delivered from the Storms and Tempests of Eternal Wrath!
