1736 March 11 (Thursday). Rose Comfortable (Grat. D.). Mr. Cooper Lecture on Deut. 32.29. Dined at Brother Alexanders. At Eve went over the Ferry with one Mr. Bradshaw of Medford, whom I found at Brother William’s. When I came to Father Champneys I found it a Melancholly Family on Account that our Dear Sister Ruth had continued from Tuesday in great Extremity, vomiting up every Thing almost that could be Administred to her. She had taken a vomit of Dr. S. Wheat, which though it worked many Times yet had not the Desired Effect to remove her Disorders. We were all in great Distress, and could hardly comply to go to Bed.
