1781 August 30 (Thursday). Mr. Benjamin Stone preacher at Southborough dined with us. He endeavours to prepare the way for my going to Southborough to administer the Lords Supper there. He agrees to go to Mr. Sumners for the next Sabbath, because of my present Infirmitys; especially by a Cloud before my Right, which is my best, Eye, by means of which I am unable to see even Capital Letters; though with Spectacles or with my burning Glass. My Left Eye, I think is also dimmer than heretofore. Such is the sovereign Will of God! which I would humbly beg Grace to submitt and resign to! Mrs. Wood here at Eve and drinks Tea with us.
