November 14, 1772

1772 November 14 (Saturday).  My dear Suse, though very low and has had no sleep last night, is yet alive!  The Doctors Toby, Perry and Pitcher came and consult — judge it a very doubtful and hazzardous Case.  She has now an inflamatory Fever.  By 10 a.m. it is high.  We expect she will be worse in the afternoon.  My Heart is full — But God is our Refuge.  Walked to Neighbour Josephus Hammonds to See little Sukey.  Mr. Moore and I dined there.  When I returned found the  Physic Suse had taken worked well, and instead of the Fever Fitts increasing, it abated and She was more calm and easy.  Blessed be God for His great Goodness to her and us!  Old Mr. Perry came to See us.  The whole Neighbourhood are very kind and greatly affected.  May God reward them!
