June 22, 1726

1726 June 22 (Wednesday).  Robert Henry went away.  I reckon’d with Neighbor Clark.  N.B. After a long time of Drought God in Mercy remembered us, and Last night and this morning (with not a little Thunder and Lightening) Sent us plentifull Showers of Rain.  I remain faint through pains in my Stomach which often Oblige me to desist Studying.  Yesterday Rebecca Paddison, apprehending Some Dangerous Tumour in her Breast, returned to her Mother.  Brother Champney[1] came up to See us.
