May God please to Pity his Family, his Parents, and Sanctify it to all Others, especially the Soldiers; and to those who are Sick in a peculiar Manner. My Son Samuel and his Consort returned from Newbury; and he had been to Pownalborough. Mr. Edwards Whipple came to desire me to attend the Funeral of Mr. Rice tomorrow. I was very infirm — had a lax Body and grew weak and faint with it.
