March 19, 1738

1738 March 19 (Sunday).  On Eph. 5.22.33.  N.B. So ill a Night last that when I awak’d in the morning I concluded I Should not be able to go to meeting.  But Samuel Forbush came with an Earnest Request  from his dying Grandfather that I would step down to him.  I rose, and wrapping up well I ventur’d, pray’d with him, etc.  As the Day rose I grew more lively, and by Divine Favour I got through the Exercises.  N.B. Mr. Samuel Mason[1] of Stonington din’d and Supp’d and lodg’d here.

[1]Descendant of Captain John Mason of Pequot War fame.
