1742 December 27 (Monday). Sent by Mr. Tainter to Boston. Mr. Stone here, din’d and Spent the p.m. I was very lively a.m. Went into the Yard — though a Cold yet a Clear Day. P.M. and Eve not without feverishness and faintness. But Blessed be God I am so far recruited! O may I Spend my Strength to His Glory!
