July 20, 1744

1744 July 20 (Friday).  Thomas Carted home the last Load of the Meadow Hay.  P.M. a very Considerable Thunder Storm but we and ours mercifully preserv’d.  D.G.  May we have, and ever Maintain the true, holy filial Fear of God and be Cur’d of a slavish Dread which keeps us in Bondage and gives Torment!  For Blessed is the man that (truely) feareth alwayes!
