February 2, 1773

1773 February 2 (Tuesday).  The Day was very Cold, the wind high and sharp, yet I ventured to go to the private Meeting at Capt. B. Fays.  John Fay drove the Sleigh.  Hannah went with me.  More people than I expected.  Preached on Numb. 23.10 to p. 13.  O that God would prosper the word of his Grace!  To me in Special!  Mrs. Fay informs me that Mrs. Jemima Miles, widow of the late Mr. Joseph Miles, dyed last Friday.  The Lord grant I may be ready also!
