July 12, 1726

1726 July 12 (Tuesday).  My Wife Rode with me to Mr. Cushings whose arm Continues very Stiff and Troublesome.  Yet Patient Job was good Company.  What a favour of heaven to have the mind Stock’d with wise, with Divine Principles whereby it is fortify’d and kept Even.  My Wife Seem’d to have a comfortable Time, and I made my Observations upon the Pleasure she seem’d to take in this Ride.  Yet I understood afterwards that while at Mr. Cushings She was not very well.
