March 26, 1774

1774 March 26 (Saturday).  Mr. Nathan Kenny is under infirmity of Body and in Gloominess of Mind, Sent for me yesterday, but it was too stormy for me to go out.  I was obliged to go today; found him very Sad; much afflicted with evil Thoughts — told me that however, he was not hopeless.  I directed, Supported and exhorted him, as I could and prayed with him as the Sorrowful Case required. But by Such interruptions of my Studys, I was obliged to have the greater Dependence on Mr. Forbes return from Boston, and preaching for Me, as I have requested him to do.
