October 17, 1754

1754 October 17 (Thursday).  Rainy Day.  A.M. my Wife and I went to See Mrs. Mainard and found her much worse.  She thinks she shall dye — she prays audibly, though with low voice; very importunately, and pertinently.  I can’t tell whether She was aware that she Spoke So loud as to be heard by others.  I receiv’d also her Testimony to the Gospel and the Ordinances thereof.  Pray’d with her and left her in a very solemn manner.  P.M. Catechiz’d at the School House.
