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 of Stonington din’d and Supp’d and lodg’d here.
Descendant of Captain John Mason of Pequot War fame.
