January 20, 1752

1752 January 20 (Monday).  Somewhat stormy in some parts of the Day; yet such the goodness of Brother Stone that he came to see me in my lowly, feeble state.  Dined here, he also prayed with me.  At Eve Captain Eager[1] and afterwards Justice Baker,[2] Mr. Hastings[3] of Watertown and his wife and others to see me.  Was very feverish, weak and faint.  N.B. Justice Baker prayed with me — the Lord accept the offering!

[1]James Eager of the north precinct.

[2]Edward Baker of Westborough was a justice of the peace.

[3]Joseph Hastings, a selectman.
