March 18, 1736

1736 March 18 (Thursday).  I rode up to Grafton to visit Mr. Prentice, who with his wife had expressed (by Letter) a most tender Sympathy under my bereaved Circumstances.  When I returned in the Eve, Brother Hicks being come back from Cambridge informed (to my Joy) that Sister Ruth Champney had had relief and was sitting up.  I desire to look upon it as a Singular Favour in Divine Providence to me and my Family considering the great Comfort and Assistance from that tender and kind Friend Received by me and mine.
