O that God would forgive my great unprofitableness and quicken and assist me in all his Works! And O That I might observe how my precious Time wastes, and Eternity long Eternity hastens upon me! I felt but poorly in the Day, but had especially much indisposition of Body through the Night. Ebenezer dugg Potatoes. We are laying up for winter of every Store we can. O may we lay up in Time for Eternity!
