September 19, 1756

1756 September 19 (Sunday).  I not only went to Meeting, but preached both parts of the Day (but did not read publickly).  Text Prov. 3.17 a. and p.m.  Contribution for Mr. Jotham Death.  N.B. Mr. Noah How’s youngest Child lies dead.  Lt. Stephen Maynard came in the morning Early to request me to go to their House, two of their Children being very bad, Stephen (of about 9) and Josiah (of [blank] Months).  I went accordingly.  The Youngest (Josiah) ceased to breathe just as we concluded prayer.  The Other departed about 2 p.m.
