January 19, 1778

1778 January 19 (Monday).  Went to Mr. Daniel Adams junior, his Wife having lain in and is very ill of a Fever.  Prayed with her.  Dined there.  I hear that Dr. Samuel Locke, late President of Harvard College, dyed Suddenly last Thursday about 10 a.m.  Lord help me duely to improve this awful Providence!  P.M. I visited Capt. Jonathan Fay, very ill of an Asthma.  Discoursed and prayed with him.  N.B. Elijah Warrin went with me to drive in the Sleigh.
