July 26, 1756

1756 July 26 (Monday).  Have had a sad Night, being exercised with strong Pain, especially in my right Knee.  Put on a Blister this Morning — but may I, above all, look to God for Relief!  For I am in His Hands, to smite or heal.  Thomas and Billy mowed in Ministerial Meadow, and p.m. Capt. Wood of Hopkinton and His Wife, made me a kind Visit.
