January 24, 1748

1748 January 24 (Sunday).  It Snowed all Day.  I preached a. and p.m. on John 12.35.  On the Death of their late worthy pastor.  May the Great Shepherd of the Sheep, the Chief Shepherd, Compassionate their State, hear and accept their humble Supplication in their late Test (Last Thursday), provide for their guidance to a Resettlement and may they walk while they have the Light — Darkness may not come upon you.  N.B. A sorrowful Accident this morning.  My Mare Slunk 2 Colts.[1]
