October 17, 1756

1756 October 17 (Sunday).  Could not Seasonably accomplish my preparation of one Sermon which I undertook; So continual were my Interruptions and Engagements every Day last Week.  I therefore repeated with Additions my Sermon on Prov. 14.9 a. and p.m.  Which may God most gracious please to bless and prosper!  Mr. Bazaleel Smith is yet living and desires prayers for him.  My little John is worse; his Flux continues, and a great Aversion to take either Medicine or Food.  Must leave him in the Hands of God who alone can help him.  My son Ebenezer is ill also.
