September 27, 1752

1752 September 27 (Wednesday).  Bears are rife about: another is kill’d in Town.  As to myself, I hope I gather Strength in the Main, but it is Slowly.  I can read and write longer than I could a while agoe.  I desire to be heartily thankful to God for us.  May I have the Grace to make a due Improvement of it!  I almost daily endeavour something in my Preparations for the Sabbath.  Billy goes to Mill to Captain Drurys.[1]  Write to my Brothers.  P.M. Mr. Winchester.
