September 3, 1756

1756 September 3 (Friday).  I remain for Some Days in much the Same State of Body.  Pained in my Right Shoulder and Right Hand, when I go to use them and my Hand remains Swelled.  My Knees also are feeble when I go up Stairs or down.  I beg Grace patiently to wait the Will of God as to my Perfect Recovery.  Perfect Recovery!  Then the Soul will be restored, which may God of His infinite Mercy grant!  My Daughter in Law dines here, and She brings little Ebenezer and Molly.  Young Larnard, Stabbed by Harrington the Night before last, is dead and Harrington committed.  Billy begins to cutt Stalks, afraid lest the Frost Should spoil ‘em.
