1781 February 28 (Wednesday). Though I have endured in the Night grievous Pains, yet (through divine Mercy and Benignity) I am in great Comfort this Morning. I am reading the excellent Sermons of Mr. Haweis and can’t but earnestly wish I might have the like Spirit in Reading, as he in writing them. I am also writing to my old Friend Mr. Quincy. Mr. Solomon Miller and son at the Flax. May God be praised who has carried us so comfortably through the Winter months!
