October 21, 1752

1752 October 21 (Saturday).  A Bright Morning after a Stormy Night.  O might I enjoy the like Favour in Spiritual Respects!  I was not very well, but it being a bright good Day I ventur’d out to the Funeral of the Widow Pierce of Hopkinton.  This prov’d a very great Interruption to my Studys — so that (to my great Grief) under my Infirmitys and Difficultys I can get but one Sermon ready for the Sabbath.
