1778 August 10 (Monday). As I came home I made a Visit to Mrs. Katharine Allen (wife of Mr. Israel Allen) who is confined by a Cancer. Mr. Allen also is under much Weakness — conversed and prayed with them. Lit also at Mr. Jos. Knowltons whose Wife is much better — was at Mr. Gershom Brighams — but especially I hastened to Mr. Broad, who though alive, yet is very low. The Bleeding has Stopped; but is now dropping. I pityed, instructed, prayed with him — hastened Mr. Rider (who lives there) for Dr. Ball. When I got home, Mrs. P______ inclined to go to him. Am informed that Mr. Sumner preached yesterday on Prov. 22.8 and 2 Cor. 2.16.
