October 28, 1745

1745 October 28 (Monday).  I would thankfully mention the Loving Kindness of the Lord towards us in Sparing us untill this Day, now 21 years since the founding of this Church and my Ordination over it.  O may the Blood of Jesus Christ cleanse me from all sin!  and quicken me to new Care and Faithfullness.  The fore Part of the Day I spent Separately. P.M. I was oblig’d to wait upon Captain Maynard and his Company in Arms with whom I pray’d, and before night I eat [sic] at Captain Maynards House.  The Lord pardon my many Defects in my holy Ministry!  and quicken and assist me hence forward — that the Blood of Immortal Souls may not be laid to my Charge!
