November 24, 1752

1752 November 24 (Friday).  The morning bright, and the whole Earth round us in its Winter White.  As to me although I am not able to dress my Self in my upper Cloths, yet I thank God I feel so well in my Stomach and am able to read, write, Study, go to the Door; and So far look after my Affairs.  My Confinement however, gives me many Disappointments.  May I have the Grace to exercise the Patience call’d for!
