August 31, 1752

1752 August 31 (Monday).  I had a very Good Night — but am weak and faint in the Day.  Kind Letter from the Reverend Brother Morse[1] recommending a Remedy which he had taken with Success.  Mr. Francis Whipple tells me he publish’d my son yesterday at the North Meeting House.  Thus have I been carry’d through this Month of deep and distressing Sickness and Pain.  May it please God to engage my whole Soul in holy Gratitude and Praise to Him who has been my only Saviour, my Refuge and Support!  And might it please him to perfect the begun Mercy in my thorow Restoration and Recovery!
