October 1, 1747

1747 October 1 (Thursday).  Very rainy Morning.  Troubled with our Hoggs, which have one Time after another got in upon the Heaps of Apples.  Read Dr. Watts’s Ruin and Recovery[1] — borrow’d of the Reverend Mr. Davis.[2]

[1]Isaac Watts seems not to have published a separate work under this title.  It appeared, however, in his Discourses, Essays, and Tracts on Various Subjects, VI (London, 1753), 177-320.
