January 28, 1750

1750 January 27 (Saturday).  Visited my Sister, who remains in much the Same distress’d Condition as last Night.  Din’d at Brother Samuels and Mr. Whipple with me, who took Care of my Horse till Monday when he is to ride him Home.  With my dear Sister at Eve who is Still in great Distress and grows weaker.  Yet She entertains an Hope in God through Christ which is as an Anchor fasten’d etc.  And were it not for her burthen’d Mind, could bear the anguishes of her Body, even though she despairs of continuing in this World.  Thinks She shall never See another Sabbath after this which (I intimated to her) is now begun — (But I keep my reckoning of Time here, after a Roman Manner).  Lodg’d at the Doctors again.
