August 25, 1752

1752 August 25 (Tuesday).  Last Night was exceeding tedious not for pains so much as Faintness, especially towards Morning I was exceeding low.  My Wife watch’d.  The forenoon was of apiece with the Morning.  My wife stills a miscellany of Meat, Herbs, Roots, seeds etc. by the Doctor’s Direction.  But my Eye and Heart are to God to Show Mercy.  Dr. Chase waits upon his Father here.  P.M. I was more lively and comfortable.  D.G.  Very free of pain — a better Evening and Night.
