January 2, 1755

1755 January 2 (Thursday).  Very Cold — but Billy to Johnsons Mill.  I have almost Every Day Deep Concern for both the Spiritual and Temporal Welfare of my Children especially my dear son Ebenezer.  Would humbly lift my Soul to God on this Account and beg Grace to Committ my whole Cause to Him, who I know will do what is wisest and best.  In That I would repose myself.
