October 13, 1747

1747 October 13 (Tuesday).  Mr. Cowell and his Wife went away, for Boston.  The Association met at my House, viz. Mr. Loring, Cushing, Barrett, Martyn, Stone, Seccomb, Smith, Morse, Davis, and Wellman.  See the Records of the Association. N.B. Jesse Maynards Child dy’d last night. Mrs. Jerusha Wood very low. While we were at Supper a messenger came for me to go and see her.  I found her drawing near to Death, yet she was very desirous of Life, but with resignation to the will of God. She had not assurance, but seem’d to have a well-grounded Hope. She dy’d before morning.
