September 8, 1746

1746 September 8 (Monday).  Visited divers Sick.  Neighbour Tomlin[1] came and desir’d me to go to Mr. Chamberlins to See his little son who was near his End, they fear’d.  I went, but he had gasp’d.  I minister’d to them as I was able, in Exhorting etc. Pray’d with them and proceeded in my Visit to Meeting with Messrs. Howe. At Eve Eli Forbush borrow’d Tully’s Orations — and having heard that Mr. Barns has lost their Fourth and last Child, I improv’d Eli to go to Mr. Barns and acquaint them that Mr. Chamberlin had fix’d the Time for his Son’s Funeral to be (God Willing) tomorrow at 2 o’Clock; and that therefore they must avoid appointing their Child’s to be at the Same Time.
