July 20, 1756

1756 July 20 (Tuesday).  Through the Divine Goodness I had a more comfortable Day — freer of Pains, and from the Nauseating Food.  I eat better, but did not venture down to dinner with the Family.  Mr. John Frost, employed by Mr. Moses Twitchell, works for me in the Newton Meadow.  Dr. Chase steps in.  P.M. Esq. Baker came to See me, as did Mr. Smith of Marlborough, who prayed with me.  Mr. Francis Whipple and Neighbour Eliezer Rice came likewise.  The last agrees to Serve me in Carting my Ministerial Meadow Hay.  I feel better this p.m. than I have done a good while.  I would heartily praise God for it!
