September 2, 1756

1756 September 2 (Thursday).  A Frost last night; but don’t See that it has done any hurt.  Mr. Forbush does not come to finish my Hearth, it being private Meeting at his House.  Sorrowful News that Oswego is taken, and Consequently both a great Interest lost, and the Enemy exceedingly strengthened.  The Lord look upon His people in much Mercy under this Sore Rebuke!  And may we be prepared for what God will do next!  And Sad News of one Harrington, his Stabbing Larnard at Watertown.  God be praised for restraining Grace to Me and Mine!
